If you plan to book a trip or have already booked a trip to travel on or after 8th October 2021

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has lifted its advice against all but essential travel for over 30 countries and territories. The change means people will be able to travel to a larger number of destinations with greater ease.

The update comes as part of a simplified system for international travel which has the seen the replacement of the traffic light system with a single ‘’red list’’, and reduced testing requirements for eligible fully vaccinated travellers.

The FCDO will no longer advise against travel to ‘’non red listed’’ countries on COVID19 grounds, except in exceptional circumstances such as if the local healthcare system is overwhelmed.

Reminder that the Millstream policies provide cover only to destinations that are NOT against the advice of the FCDO for; all travel or all but essential travel.

We continue to recommend that Insured Persons check the FCDO advice before booking a trip, and prior to departing for a trip, and also check the entry and exit rules of their destination or any connecting destinations.
