COVID-19 Travel Update

Updated: Noon 04/02/20 

Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus in China, the World Health Authority has formally declared it a Global Health Emergency until this virus is brought under control.

Consequently a number of countries and travel suppliers around the world have implemented certain travel restrictions as a precaution. These restrictions have been put in place to minimise risk and improve the safety of overseas travellers.

Only those who have travelled through China within two months of further travel are likely to restricted and could be prevented from boarding certain flights and ships in various countries. 

Customers who have not recently returned from China can continue to travel to other destinations without concern. 

As the information relating to the Coronavirus is changing quickly, we strongly advise that you refer to both the government and your travel supplier websites for further updates.
