FCO's Consular Division produces a range of material intended to advise and inform British citizens travelling abroad. This includes advice to help British travellers avoid trouble, especially threats to their personal safety arising from political unrest, lawlessness, violence, natural disasters, epidemics anti-British demonstrations and aircraft safety. This area offers access to the full range of Travel Advice notices, and a selection of consular information material.
Choose a country using the drop-down menu below, or click on 'Travel Advice' on the right for a full alphabetical listing. If a particular country is not included in the list of Travel Advice notices this is because FCO has no information on the above criteria to offer at this time. For more general advice on major travel destinations, see our 'Do's and Don'ts' series.
Don't forget you can personalise the web site to receive email notification of changes to any, or all of FCO's Travel Advice notices.
