To ask Her Majesty's Government what are the permissible reasons for UK citizens to travel internationally while the restrictions to address the COVID-19 pandemic are in place.
15 February 2021
As the Prime Minister said in his statement on 27 January, under the stay at home regulations it is illegal to leave home to travel abroad for leisure purposes.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (England) Regulations 2020 set out the legally permitted reasons to leave home, and therefore travel internationally. These reasons include compassionate visits, where one is visiting someone who is dying, or for essential work purposes.
