Easier to travel abroad as travel advice changes for over 50 countries and territories

Coventry Editorial 9th Oct, 2021 Updated: 9th Oct, 2021

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) will lift its advice against all but essential travel for a further 51 countries and territories.

This follows the removal of travel advisories to 32 countries and territories, made on Wednesday 6 October.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said:

These updates make travel abroad easier – boosting trade, tourism and reuniting friends and families. I am delighted that the safe reopening of travel allows people to exercise personal responsibility and visit more destinations across the globe.

The FCDO no longer advises against travel to non-red list countries on COVID-19 grounds, except in exceptional circumstances such as if the local healthcare system is overwhelmed. Travellers will be able to purchase travel insurance for a wider range of destination as a result of these updates.

Travellers should check FCDO travel advice for the entry requirements for their destination, including any proof of vaccination they may need, as well as testing and quarantine rules.
