I've recently been overseas. Can I donate?

Coronavirus has changed how travelling affects your eligibility: check out the latest updates. It depends where you’ve travelled, but you’ll need to wait at least four weeks to donate, and it could be up to four months.

Even if you do everything 'right', it's possible that you can still catch something and not realise: especially in areas that have a high risk of certain infections carried by insects, animals or people. You could even feel well and have no symptoms at all.

The best thing to do is double check before you book. Check the travel page to see when you can donate.
