Passport, Visa & Travel Advice
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) website has up-to-the-minute travel advice for your destination and will offer guidance on everything from health, immunisation, passport and visa requirements. You will even find handy tips on local laws and customs as well as crucial information on currency and navigating through your arrival airport.
It is imperative that you check passport and visa requirements as well as any immunisation guidelines for the countries you are travelling to as early as possible as processing necessary documentation can take some time.
Firstly, you should ensure your passport has at least 6 months validity beyond your length of stay as this is now a mandatory requirement for many countries around the world.
