Where Can You Work Abroad?

05 Jul 2020

Following recent UK government announcements it is now a lot clearer on where you can work abroad from July 10th onwards. You will no longer have to self-isolate when you arrive back to England from any of these popular destinations in Europe:  Andorra, Austria, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Turkey and Switzerland. Portugal is not included. Guidance for Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales to follow.


 

You can read the full list of 59 countries issued by the Department for Transport here but you should be aware that only 25 of these countries currently have no restrictions on incoming British travellers. For example Austria is advising that people only enter the country for essential reasons so tourists would not be allowed. Greece is included on the list but no direct flights from the UK will be allowed until 15th July. 

Research by The PC Agency and AudienceNet reveals the following destinations are currently open to British travellers without restrictions:

Andorra
Belgium
Croatia
Czech Republic
Denmark
Faroe Islands
France
Germany
Gibraltar
Greenland
Italy
Liechtenstein
Luxembourg
Malta (from July 15)
Monaco
Netherlands
Poland
Reunion
San Marino
Serbia
South Georgia and Sandwich Islands
Spain
Switzerland
Turkey
Vatican City

Further restrictions on work visa/permits may also apply in the countries listed above.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has published a separate list of 67 countries and territories that will be exempt from its global advisory against all non-essential travel from 4th July. These countries have been assessed as no longer presenting an unacceptably high risk to British people travelling abroad. Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) travel advice is based on risks to British nationals, including in-country public health assessments.

The FCO list also includes these popular European work abroad destinations: Andorra, Austria, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Turkey and Switzerland. Portugal is also excluded from this list at the moment. You can view the full FCO list here.
