19th Nov 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress has been made by the Global Travel Taskforce on the development of a COVID-19 testing regime for international arrivals and departures to and from the UK; and when such a regime might be implemented.

The Global Travel Taskforce has published its report, which contains a series of recommendations aimed at ensuring there are clear public health measures, increasing demand safely and that the UK is at the forefront in leading global standards.

As well as rolling out ‘Test to Release for International Travel’ from 15 December for arrivals into England, they include the continued development of potential pre-departure testing models.

The UK continues to explore pilots with partner countries on a bilateral basis, including exploring different possible models for pre-departure testing.

We will of course remain open to new testing technologies and other approaches that help people travel safely. As our knowledge and capacity for testing develops, so will our policy.

To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress has been made by the Global Travel Taskforce on its objectives; when that Taskforce expects to report; and when they expect to make public its findings.

The Global Travel Taskforce has published its report, which contains a series of recommendations aimed at ensuring there are clear public health measures, increasing demand safely and that the UK is at the forefront in leading global standards.

The report sets out 14 recommendations for the Government to take forward to support the safe recovery of international travel. As well as rolling out the test to release regime, they include the continued development of pre-departure testing models, studying the feasibility of a short stay business exemption, and continuing to advocate for harmonization of global standards.

In addition to ‘Test to Release for International Travel’, we remain open to new testing technologies and other approaches that will help people travel. As our knowledge and capacity for testing develops, so will our policy.

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to their decision to remove the Canary Islands from their travel corridor list for the COVID-19 pandemic, what plans they have to renew their advice on holiday travel to that destination.

FCDO travel advice related to COVID-19 is based on the country assessments of Public Health England and the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC), the organisation mandated to provide health advice to British nationals travelling overseas. They judge the risks of exposure to COVID-19 in each country/territory. All FCDO travel advice pages remain under constant review to ensure they reflect the latest threat assessment to British nationals and include up-to-date information and advice.

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to publish the evidence supporting the case for specific travel advice for cruise ships.

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) advises against ocean cruising informed by public health risk assessments. This advice is kept under continuous review. The risk assessments to inform travel advice from Public Health England and the Department of Health and Social Care are not published separately.

The FCDO remains fully committed to working closely with the Department for Transport and key industry leaders, informed by the changing public health situation during this pandemic to agree on the steps required to restart cruises safely.
