About the Scottish Parliament

International connections

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, public engagement is currently suspended.

This is to try to reduce the risk to the essential staff who work at the Parliament.

This means:

  • the Parliament building is closed to the public
  • all International Relations Office supported visits are postponed
