Where can I get official advice from British and U.S. governments on travel abroad?
Frequently Asked Questions

Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) offers country-specific travel advice notices for British citizens; these notices are regularly updated.

The FCO site also explores in depth the risk of terrorism when traveling abroad.

The U.S. State Department offers travel advice for U.S. citizens on its web site, including information on travel to the United Kingdom.

In 2004, the US Department of Homeland Security developed a scheme at various US air and sea ports to register the departure of non-immigrant visa holders, this was extended to cover travellers on the visa waiver program from September 30, 2004. The FCO's travel advice for the US has more information.
