Exterior travel advice: England and Scotland

The State of Hokoria borders the English region of West Yorkshire, in the city of Leeds, and the Scottish region of North Lanarkshire. The Royal Government of Hokoria maintains no formal relations with local or national Governments within the United Kingdom (including England and Scotland).

Entry to England and Scotland

From the State of Hokoria’s territory bordering England and Scotland, no passport or visa checks are enforced by the Royal Government of Hokoria or the British Government. The British Government does not recognise the State of Hokoria’s independence and does not enforce a border.

You may face border checks when entering the United Kingdom from elsewhere. The British Government may not accept a Hokorian Passport and it is advised that holders do not attempt to cross the British border with Hokorian documents.

Safety and security

The emergency telephone number (for police, fire, ambulance and coast guard) in the United Kingdom is 999. There is also a Text Relay service available.

England and Scotland are generally safe countries, though there is a heightened risk of terrorism against Westerners. The risk of a terrorist attack in the United Kingdom is substantial, according to the United Kingdom’s Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre and the Security Service (MI5).

Petty crime, such as theft and pickpocketing, is common in busy areas and tourist attractions. It’s recommended to keep your belongings with you at all times.

Health

Medical services are widely available across the United Kingdom, including through the National Health Service (NHS). Free healthcare is available to UK residents and some EU nationals or visa holders.

You may be subject to an NHS surcharge and could be charged 150% of the cost of any medical treatment you receive from the NHS.

Female and LGBTQ+ travellers

Female and LGBTQ+ travellers in particular face an elevated safety risk when travelling to foreign territories. It’s important to conduct research on attitudes towards women or LGBTQ+ people before travelling.
