It is illegal to travel abroad without a legally permitted reason to do so. Police officers will be deployed at airports and ports to support the enforcement of these regulations, including checking the reason for passengers’ journeys.

We are keeping demand for managed quarantine facilities under close review and are ready to put in place arrangements for additional capacity should it be required.
