Depending on where you’re travelling, you might need to get a visa before you’ll be allowed to enter another country.
The rules on visas vary from one country to the next, so check what you need before you head off. Make sure to do it well in advance too – some visa applications can take a while, particularly countries where there are restrictions on the number of visas the government will issue.
If you’re planning to go abroad for work, you may need a work visa – check to make sure you have the right one as some countries will have different visas for full-time and casual work. If you’re going to work abroad, you may still have to pay some UK income tax on sources of income from the UK like a rental property, savings or a pension. See HMRC for details.
If you plan to do a lot of travelling when you’re there, try to make an itinerary and book all your travel and accommodation in advance. It can be a lot cheaper than booking everything at the last minute.
