England National travel restrictions – you can only travel internationally for essential reasons

  • Whilst national restrictions are in place, you can only travel internationally from England for legally permitted reasons. This does not include holidays.
  • From 08/03/21, travellers departing from England to travel internationally must complete a travel declaration form and carry it with them along any evidence supporting the reason for their trip.
  • Exemptions to the travel ban include some work, volunteering, education, medical or compassionate grounds and some weddings and funerals.
  • Travellers will be required to show the form at the port of departure. It is an offence to enter a port of departure or embarkation point without a properly completed form if travelling internationally. Travellers may be issued with a fixed penalty notice and directed to return home if you do not have a valid reason for travel.
