Foreign & Commonwealth Office travel advice is constantly under review so that it reflects our latest assessment of risks to British people.
In response to coronavirus measures, we are advising against all and all but essential travel to some countries, cities and regions. You must check the travel advice to the country you are travelling to.
If you are abroad and need advice, please call the Consular Hotline on +44 (0) 207 008 1500.
If travel advice changes while you are abroad:
If we change FCO travel advice, we usually advise you to follow the advice of local authorities. Your safety and security is the responsibility of the local authority where you are.
If you are abroad when our travel advice changes, contact your airline or travel company, and your insurance provider as soon as you are able.
You should also keep checking our travel advice. If we advise people to leave a country we will say so. We only organise assisted departure in exceptional circumstances.
Quarantine while you are abroad:
If the local authority where you are proposes to quarantine you for your own protection, you should follow their advice. When you are abroad, your safety and security is their responsibility.
If there are suspected cases of coronavirus where you are, you may need to remain in your hotel room or accommodation for 14 days, move to quarantine facilities, take tests for coronavirus and, if positive in some cases, be hospitalised abroad.
You should also contact your airline or travel company, and your insurance provider as soon as you can. We only organise assisted departure in exceptional circumstances.
If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact my office by emailing email@example.com or by calling +44 (0) 207 219 5579
