FCO updated travel advice

The FCO has updated its global advisory against ‘all but essential’ travel, exempting destinations that no longer pose an unacceptably high risk for British travellers.

These exemptions are valid as at 16th October 2020. All our advice will remain under constant review to take into account the latest situation in each country.

These countries have been assessed as no longer presenting an unacceptably high risk to British people travelling abroad. Foreign & Commonwealth Office travel advice is based on risks to British nationals, including in-country public health assessments.
