The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides information about different countries and regions within those countries.The latest advice from the FCO can be found online at www.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo.

Some general pre-travel advice:

  • research local laws and customs before you travel
  • check out medical requirements by visiting www.nhs.uk/livewell/travelhealth or your GP at least six weeks before you travel
  • If you're taking any medication, make sure it is allowed in the country/countries you're visiting - even some general cold remedies are banned / illegal or require a prescription in some countries
  • make copies of important travel documents or store them online using a secure data storage site
  • understand what the Foreign & Commonwealth Office can and can't do for travellers
