Petition Action

Allow international travel to visit partners and family

Petition Details

The Government should class in-person interaction with family members and unmarried partners abroad as an essential reason to travel.

Additional Information

It is vital for people’s mental wellbeing. It is simply inhumane to isolate and forcibly separate people and their family/partner. There are safe ways of enabling people to travel to their family members and/or partners, so there is no reason why the UK cannot facilitate this.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
