The Home Office continues to monitor the on-going changes to international flight restrictions and entry requirements imposed by receiving countries caused by the global response to COVID-19.

Enforced and voluntary returns continue on a case by case basis where we are able to do so.Given the difficulty of returning to many countries in the current situation and the constantly evolving conditions worldwide, it would not be practical to publish a list of countries where return is still not possible..
