Information for staff travelling abroad, in the UK and Quarantining on return to the UK

With effect from 4th July 2020, the Foreign and Common Office (FCO) updated their guidance against Travel to EXEMPTED countries only. No restrictions against travel will apply to these exempted Countries, which can be found here:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-countries-and-territories-exempt-from-advice-against-all-but-essential-international-travel

Please note that the government recently revoked the exempt travel corridor status for Spain at very short notice, and has now done the same for France, Netherlands, Malta, Luxembourg, Belgium, Andorra, and the Bahamas. Given the fluid nature of the current situation we are asking that College staff consider very carefully before making a decision to travel even to exempt countries and please follow all UK applicable government guidance in place at the time. 

If you are intending on travelling overseas on College business please also continue to follow College guidance and seek the approval of your Head of Department before booking any travel. If for any reason circumstances change with respect to the exempt status of a country where you are intending to travel then please contact our business travel agent  and/or insurance department for advice and guidance.
