Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office -  Travel Advice

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office publishes regularly updated travel information on the FCDO website and also on the Travel Aware website which you are strongly recommended to consult before booking and in good time before departure.

Other nationalities should access their own government support websites.

Check your passport is valid for travel before you book your trip, and renew your passport if you do not have enough time left on it.

For travel within any Schengen country you need to have at least 3 months validity after the day you plan to leave. The 3 months you need must be within 10 years of the passport issue date. Other countries may require longer than 3 months validity.

If you’re planning a trip you should also read the travellers' checklist – it’s full of practical tips for having a safe and enjoyable time.
