British Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office Advice:
Cox & Kings supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Travel Aware campaign to help you stay safe and healthy overseas. Find out more at Travel Aware. The FCDO website provides travel information for many countries around the world which includes advice on safety and security, entry requirements and health, as well as general information. Cox & Kings strongly recommends that you, and everyone on your booking, visit the FCDO website and read the advice about the country you are planning to visit prior to booking. You should also revisit the advice regularly prior to your departure as it may change frequently. It is also possible to sign-up to receive FCDO e-mail updates for your destination so you are aware of any changes to advice they issue and we recommend you do this. There are different levels of advice, and sometimes this includes advice against travelling to certain areas or countries.
