Responsibility for tourism is devolved to the Overseas Territories Governments. The British Government supports strong cultural links with the Overseas Territories, which attract many visitors from the United Kingdom each year.

The UK Government has supported the Overseas Territories throughout the pandemic, and the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office have been coordinating the delivery of COVID-19 vaccines to the Territories which will be essential to help reopen their economies and borders.
