COVID-19: Vaccinations and advice on travelling abroad for work

Please read our advice pages relevant to the nation(s) you work in. They cover regulations in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.


Please note that even if you have received a COVID-19 vaccination, you must still follow all government guidance and rules, as it may still be possible to spread the virus after a vaccination. See health guidance on vaccinations for England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland for further information.

Travelling abroad

You must follow all rules and guidance issued by national governments if you are returning from abroad to any UK nation.

Please be aware that the quarantine exemptions for professional performing artists and musicians were withdrawn for all four UK nations from 18 January 2021.

For more information please see international travel advice for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The information for Scotland and Northern Ireland will refer you back to the UK government guidance for England, which states:

'Performing arts professionals: This job no longer qualifies for an exemption as of 4am Monday 18 January 2021.'

These measures will be kept under review. We will update this information accordingly.
