To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, whether he plans to review Government advice on all but essential travel before the introduction of the Test to Release for International Travel scheme.
8 December 2020
From 5 November, the FCDO moved away from advising against all non-essential international travel, returning to country specific advice. We retained advice against all but essential travel to a number of countries based on risks due to Covid-19. FCDO travel advice remains under constant review and considers both the epidemiological and non-epidemiological risks associated with Covid-19 in each destination. When the FCDO no longer assesses the risks to British nationals to be unacceptably high, travel advice is updated accordingly.
