To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 11 March 2021 to Question 164471 on Travel: Coronavirus, whether foreign nationals visiting the UK are permitted to return home during the covid-19 outbreak; and whether that is an acceptable reason for travel for the purposes of travel declarations under covid-19 restrictions.
16 March 2021
Under the domestic stay at home regulations, everyone in England must have a legally permitted reason for being outside the place they are living or staying whilst in England. Travelling to a home abroad is not necessarily a legally permitted reason, but there are circumstances (where it might be, these are set out on gov.uk).
Anyone departing from England to return to a home outside the Common Travel Area, must complete a travel declaration form, outlining the reason for being outside the place where they are living.
