What exceptions are available in the post-firebreak regulations for couples using fertility clinics abroad in Europe for fertility treatments like IVF?

Answered by Minister for Health and Social Services | Answered on 11/11/2020

Regulations which came into force on 09 November set out restrictions on travel to and from Wales: https://gov.wales/sites/default/files/publications/2020-11/the-health-protection-coronavirus-restrictions-no-4-wales-regulations-2020.pdf

Under the Regulations, travel to obtain or provide medical assistance, including fertility treatment, is considered reasonable. However, those travelling must ensure they read and keep up to date with any additional restrictions and quarantine obligations, which can be found on the Welsh Government website here: https://gov.wales/travellers-exempt-self-isolation-coronavirus-covid-19
