Travel to Dundee from outside the UK and Scotland will continue to be conditional on certain restrictions for the foreseeable future. Different restrictions may apply to Scotland and other parts of the UK.

If you are travelling from outside the UK, please check the status and conditions of travelling to your airport destination in the UK and (if applicable) onwards to Scotland. We expect this to be subject to change depending on the categorisation of your country by the government. Please do keep checking the UK Government and Scottish Government websites for updates.
