So, how do we make this decision? Our customers’ safety is our priority, so you can be assured that we always follow travel advice from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). This is monitored stringently and we are in an excellent position to respond quickly to changing guidance. If they advise not to go; we don’t go.
The outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has led to a number of changes around the world. This is a rapidly evolving situation that we are monitoring 24/7. We will always proactively contact any customers whose trips are affected by changes to UK FCO advice. We know you will want to hear from us urgently, but please be assured that we will get to everybody as quickly as we can, in order of departure date.
A number of countries are now introducing immigration controls that will deny entry based on recent travel and where you’re travelling from. It is your responsibility to check the entry requirements and documents for entry required by the country you’re visiting based on your nationality, recent travels and where you’re travelling from. The list of countries that have amended their entry requirements is changing frequently, it is not uncommon for a country to change requirements on a daily basis. Therefore if you are travelling soon you must confirm the entry requirements for your destination. We’d recommend that you consult travel advice given by your relevant government and the IATA site is a useful resource for checking requirements.
