What you need to do to travel abroad Posted on 17 Aug 2021

Before you travel abroad, you need to check the entry rules for the country you want to go to.

You should check foreign travel advice to find out if:

  • the country you want to go to will allow people from England to enter
  • the UK government advises against all but essential travel to the country

Check foreign travel advice for all countries you will visit or travel through.

Foreign travel advice will also tell you if you will need to:

  • show proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination status to enter a country
  • quarantine when you arrive there
