The ongoing pandemic has changed the way we travel, especially through air and safety has gone significant from all angles. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated air travelers have some international travel recommendations to go around for keeping themselves safe from the virus and future complications to be faced in the destination nation in accordance with the travel during the pandemic.
Even though fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get infected and spread COVID-19, international travel might put them at risk for getting infected and possibly spreading some variants. Here all travelers need to pay close attention to country-specific pandemic precautionary protocols.
Before you travel make sure you understand and follow all airline and destination requirements related to travel, mask-wearing, testing, or quarantine. Otherwise, you may be denied entry and required to return back. Also, check the ongoing COVID-19 situation in your landing place. While traveling, wear a mask and also with no compromise have possible physical distance from the travel mates. Do not travel if you were exposed to COVID-19, you are unwell, you test positive or you are waiting for the results of the test. Also, don’t travel with someone who is sick.
Both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people must get tested 1-3 days prior to your trip. If the viral test is negative, avoid masses and stay at least 2 meters away from everyone. Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer. Don’t miss to check with your destination’s Office of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Health for details about entry requirements and restrictions. If needed provide any required or requested health information and also check if your airline requires any health information, testing, or other documents. For such services, there are organizations like Universal Airport Assistance with customer-friendly and professional airport assistance for passengers worldwide.
If you recovered from a registered COVID-19 infection within the last 3 months, follow all requirements and recommendations for fully vaccinated travelers except the test 3-5 days after travel unless you are symptomatic. Because people can continue to test positive for up to 3 months after diagnosis and not be infectious to others.
