Repeal of foreign travel orders and transitional provisions

Foreign travel orders have now been replaced by (a) sexual harm prevention orders and (b) sexual risk orders (both of which make provision for prohibitions on foreign travel). For further information see Practice Notes: Sexual harm prevention orders and Sexual risk orders.

The above is as a result of section 114 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 (SOA 2003) having been repealed by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (ABCPA 2014).

Practitioners should however note the effect of the saving and transitional provisions: the repeal or amendment of the SOA 2003, ss 104–129 (by the 2014 Act) does not apply in relation to:

  1. an application for a foreign travel order made before 8 March 2015

  2. an existing order (whether made before or after 8 March 2015) which had been applied for before 8 March 2015, or

  3. anything done in connection with such an application or order

From 8 March 2015 when section 114 came into force, there can be no variation of an existing order or an old order that extends the period of the order of any of its provisions. This means that the courts are prohibited from lengthening the overall duration of such orders or the duration of individual terms.
