The FCO updated its global advisory against ‘all but essential’ travel, exempting destinations that no longer pose an unacceptably high risk for British travellers.
These exemptions came into effect on 4 July. All our advice will remain under constant review to take into account the latest situation in each country.
However, it is worth noting that the global coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing. No travel is risk-free, and disruption is still possible. If you plan to travel:
read the coronavirus travel guidance to make sure you are prepared for your travel
read the Travel Advice for your destination, for information on local coronavirus measures that you will need to follow
sign up for email alerts for Travel Advice to ensure you are informed of any changes while you are travelling
These countries have been assessed as no longer presenting an unacceptably high risk to British people travelling abroad. Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) travel advice is based on risks to British nationals, including in-country public health assessments.
The FCO continues to advise against non-essential international travel, except to the countries and territories listed on this page.
Exempt countries and territories
France (overseas territories of France are listed separately, where included in the exemption)
The Netherlands (not including the constituent countries and special municipalities located in the Dutch Caribbean)
