The safety of British Nationals is of paramount importance and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s travel advice for British nationals is clear; we advise against all travel to Gaza. Decisions on approval for official and ministerial visits to Gaza are taken on a case by case basis in light of the security and political situation at the time.
