Passport and Visa Information
 

Everyone in your party will need a valid passport to travel and we recommend that it has at least 6 months validity. You should consult the consulate or embassy of the country you are planning to visit, and check the passport and visa requirements at the time of booking.

Whilst the World Health Organisation (WHO) is no longer treating the Zika virus as an emergency, it still maintains that the virus represents a 'significant and enduring' challenge. We advise that people planning to travel to areas that may be impacted are advised to check and follow the advice of The National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNac) and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) before they travel.

Pregnant women already booked to travel to any of the destinations affected, should seek medical advice from their GP. Those planning to become pregnant should discuss their travel plans with their healthcare provider to assess their risk of infection with Zika and receive advice on mosquito bite avoidance measures.

Please visit the World Health Organisation website for more information.
