The FCO's country-specific Travel Advice notices aim to ensure that British travellers are well prepared before their departure.  The FCO website also contains answers to common questions on Travel Advice in our FAQs section.

Select the country you are travelling to from the drop-down menu below. If a particular country is not included in the list of Travel Advice notices this is because the FCO has no information on the country at the present time.

The telephone number for travel advice is 0870 606 0290.
