Masks no longer required

Following the latest announcements by the French and Belgian governments, face masks are no longer compulsory on board our trains and in our stations. It is now a personal choice and we are respectful that some customers and staff may continue to wear a mask.

Information for Ukrainian nationals travelling to the UK

To help Ukrainian nationals travelling to the UK, we can offer a free Eurostar ticket from any Eurostar station to London St. Pancras International.

If you have a valid visa to enter the UK, along with your Ukrainian passport, please speak to a member of the Eurostar team at Paris Nord, Brussels-Midi, Lille Europe, Rotterdam Centraal or Amsterdam Central stations, and they will issue a ticket for travel to London.

It is important to arrive with the necessary visa documents, as these will be checked by the UK Border Force during the check-in process. The UK government is regularly reviewing the criteria for Ukrainian refugees to enter the UK, so we would strongly recommend contacting the British Embassy or checking the UK government website for the latest information.

All train operators across England, Scotland and Wales are offering free onward travel if your final destination is outside London. To qualify, you will need to show your Ukrainian passport and your Eurostar ticket, and you will have 48 hours from arrival in the UK to complete your journey. 

You will also be able to travel for free across London by bus, tram, underground or Docklands Light Railway (DLR) services, to help you to reach your destination. More information on the National Rail website

For information, we are unfortunately unable to accept pets for travel on Eurostar. If you are travelling with a guide or assistance dog, please speak to our team in the station.
