Offenders who are released on licence are subject to a restriction which means they are not permitted to travel outside the UK during their licence period, unless they have express permission from their supervising officer. Permission is granted only in exceptional circumstances, and on a temporary basis, as defined by the criteria contained in Probation Instruction 09/15, “Licence Conditions and Temporary Travel Abroad”.

Information on the number of offenders who have been given permission to travel abroad on licence is not collated electronically. To provide this information would incur disproportionate costs.
