Ministry for Foreign Affairs reintroduces advice against travel to the United Kingdom

Published

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs decided on 21 December 2020 to reintroduce advice against non-essential travel to the United Kingdom. The decision came into force immediately.

The decision was made after the Ministry for Foreign Affairs considered the prevailing exceptional and uncertain circumstances concerning travel from the United Kingdom.

Travellers are urged to maintain close contact with their travel operators and review their insurance cover. It should be noted that all travel, including within Europe, will probably involve a great deal of uncertainty for a long time to come. 

The decision to reintroduce the advice against non-essential travel to the United Kingdom came into force immediately on 21 December 2020 and applies until further notice. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs is in continuous contact with the Public Health Agency of Sweden, which agrees with this assessment.
