Latest Advice: Do not travel to Estonia.

23 March 2021

There's a ban on overseas travel from Australia. You can’t leave Australia unless you have an exemption from the Department of Home Affairs, or are travelling to a destination that is exempt from the ban.

Our global travel advice remains at 'Do not travel' due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. Some destinations were already set at Do Not Travel prior to COVID-19 due to the extreme risk to your safety.

If you’re overseas and wish to return to Australia, be prepared for delays and read our advice on trying to get home. 

When you arrive in Australia you must quarantine for 14 days at designated facilities in your port of arrival, unless you have an exemption or are travelling on a quarantine-free flight from a green zone destination. At this time, vaccination against COVID-19 does not change this quarantine requirement. You may be required to pay for the costs of your quarantine. View State and Territory Government COVID-19 information for information about quarantine and domestic borders.

If you're staying overseas, make plans to stay for an extended period. Follow the advice of local authorities and minimise your risk of exposure to COVID-19. Stay in touch with family and friends so they know you're safe.

Our network of embassies and consular posts around the world will provide you with up-to-date local advice and support throughout this difficult period. Be aware consular services may be limited due to local measures.

For the latest information, read and subscribe to our news and travel advice. Also see our COVID-19 information pages.

United Kingdom: Foreign and Commonwealth Office Foreign Travel Advice Still current at: 5 April 2021 Updated: 29 March 2021 Latest update:

Updated information on the lifting of the freedom of movement restriction on arrival to Estonia from 29 March ('Summary' 'Coronavirus' and 'Entry requirements' pages)

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises against all but essential travel to:
  • The whole of Estonia based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

If you are returning to the UK from Estonia on or after 4am on 28 November you will need to self-isolate or undergo hotel quarantine on your return (unless you are exempt). Check the latest guidance for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The FCDO is not advising those already travelling in Estonia to leave at this time. Travellers should follow the advice of the local authorities on how best to protect themselves and others, including any measures that they bring in to control the virus. You should contact your tour operator or airline if you have any questions about your return journey.

Check our advice on things to consider, and be prepared to stay overseas longer than planned.

Travel to Estonia is subject to entry restrictions

  • Travellers from the UK are required to complete and submit a customer locator form (either at the port of entry or electronically before arrival)
  • The 10-day self-isolation period and COVID-19 testing are not mandatory for individuals who were either tested positive for COVID-19 and declared cured less than six months ago, those who have undergone COVID-19 vaccination less than six months ago, or arrivals from a country in the European Union, European Economic Area and the Schengen area with an infection rate below 150 persons per 100,000 inhabitants over the previous 14 days.

Preparing for your return journey to the UK

If you’re returning to the UK from overseas, you will need to:

  • provide your journey and contact details before you travel

If your return journey to the UK transits another country, you should check whether it is subject to a travel ban or any other additional requirements. If so, contact your travel provider.
