As you will be aware, there have been some changes and restrictions for UK flights arriving into various overseas destinations, which in some circumstances there are also changes for arrivals back into the UK.
It is very important that all travellers have full understanding and awareness on what restrictions and of any entry requirements applicable to the country they are travelling to, such as compulsory passenger locator forms.
Country information can be found below and also on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) page: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-countries-and-territories-exempt-from-advice-against-all-but-essential-international-travel
As these requirements can change at any moment, the below is for guidance purpose only to which we aim to update as regularly as possible, but it is the customers full responsibility to ensure they have the correct and up to date information.
Each overseas destination has varying set rules and policies in regards to personal safety measures, such as when/where personal face masks are to be worn. This is to be checked by the customer prior to travel by checking the above FCO link and each overseas local Tourism Board site for up to date regulations/stipulations.
