Travel and Covid-19

With the current pandemic, travel rules to various parts of the world are constantly changing as the government tries to slow the spread of the virus.  If you do need to travel during this time, make sure you consult the government website to check which rules apply to the country you plan on visiting.  This website will not only give you guidence on the rules and regulations of visiting foreign countries, but also any quarantine periods that may be required upon your return.

Please be aware that you may need to provide proof of your two Covid-19 vaccinations before and during your travels.  In some instances, the card you were given when you had your vaccination is not deemed sufficient proof. If you were vaccinated in the UK and have the NHS App, your proof of vaccination, along with a QR code, should appear on the App.  This will be accepted as proof of vaccination.  Additionally you can apply for a NHS COVID Pass. This provides proof of your status both within the UK and abroad, and you can apply for one through the NHS App, the NHS website, and by calling 119.  If you require the pass to be posted to you, please allow up to 5 days.

Do You Need Vaccinations?

Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.
