Yes, everyone needs to wear a face mask at all times while travelling, apart from children under six years old and people that can’t wear a mask for medical reasons. If you fail to wear a face mask, you’ll be breaking the law and could be fined. Be prepared to put your mask on before you enter the airport and keep it on while you’re there, onboard the plane, at the overseas airport and as you travel to your accommodation.
You might also need to wear your mask at your accommodation and around your resort, so please check the local guidance when you arrive.
Face masks need to cover your mouth and nose and should be either a protective or medical-style mask, or a fitted face covering. Coverings such as scarves, snoods, balaclavas or any similar items aren’t acceptable for travel.
It’s a good idea to stock up on masks before you travel as it’s recommended you change disposable ones every four hours and wash reusable ones after each use. Plus, you’ll need to wear a mask for your whole return journey too.
There may be some destination specific information you need to know about face masks too, so please check the FCDO website.
