COVID-19

The requirements for travel documents may have changed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Which documents

Which travel documents you need depends on a couple of factors:

  • your country of departure, transfer, and destination;
  • your nationality;
  • your country of residence.

We advise checking the embassy website of the country you’re visiting. For detailed information suitable for your trip, check our travel documents tool.

Brexit: impact on your travel documents

The UK leaving the European Union caused changes to travel formalities. It’s your own responsibility to make sure you have the correct travel documents, including a passport that complies with the validity rules of the country you’re travelling to. Unfortunately, we don’t have any control over potential customs or border delay.
