I’m meant to be visiting Malta in September to visit family, haven’t seen them in 7 yrs, they visit us couple of times, but this time it’s for a family wedding, obviously it’s their country, I’m worried anyway with my gastric situation, I have to irrigate daily, nurses have pro me with “ passport “ if u can call it that in case of bag search, but I’m worried that I may lose my lcwra for the 7 days I’m away?

    As you have been found to have LCWRA then you have no work commitments. This means that going on holiday for 7 days will not affect your UC. You are allowed to go away for a maximum of 28 days. Any more than this and your UC will end.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    You will not.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hello @dominique1970 and welcome to the community :) Your trip to Malta sounds great, especially seeing family after so long! Are you looking forward to the wedding?

    I hope we've helped to reassure you about your LCWRA, is there anything else you're still unsure of?

    I hope you have a wonderful time in September, and just ask if there's anything more we can help with.
