Coronavirus (COVID-19): countries and territories exempt from advice against ‘all but essential’ international travel

Friday, October 2nd, 2020 | News

The FCDO has a global advisory against ‘all but essential’ travel, but exempts destinations that do not pose an unacceptably high risk for British travellers.

About the exempt countries and territories list

Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) travel advice reflects the latest assessment of risks to British nationals in each country or territory overseas.

The FCDO continues to advise against non-essential international travel at this time, except to the countries and territories listed on this page.

The list includes all countries and territories assessed as not posing an unacceptably high risk to British travellers, based on the latest assessment of COVID-19 risks overseas. It does not reflect any entry restrictions that these countries and territories may require British travellers to comply with. You should check the relevant travel advice page for information on any such restrictions.

All our travel advice remains under constant review to ensure it reflects our latest assessment of risk to British nationals overseas.
