Will I need a visa to travel?

Answer:

This is dependent on your country of destination. 

If you are travelling to an EC (European Community) country and have a valid UK Passport (British Citizen status) you will not require a visa.

For advice on non-EC destinations for UK passport holders, please visit the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) web-site (click on this link to access FCO) and then navigate to the advice for the country you are travelling to. 

For all non-UK passport holders, you will need to contact the embassy or consulate of your country of destination.  These contacts can also be found on the FCO web-site
