COVID-19 Travel Updates 
Travel and entry restrictions by country updated regularly with the latest directives from governments worldwide. Last update: 22/07/2021

The outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus has now been labeled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), and countries all around the world have begun implementing measures to help contain the spread of the virus.

Depending on the country, the preventative measures against COVID-19 include travel restrictions, border closures, and the suspension of flights from highly affected areas.

Many countries have closed seaports and prohibited cruise ships from docking for varying periods of time. Many land borders between countries have closed to passenger traffic, although may remain open solely for the transportation of goods.

Additionally, a number of nations around the world have implemented a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all travelers who are permitted to cross their borders. Another of the measures adopted by governments of different countries is the request for a travel health certificate to enter.

Below you can find a list of all the countries who have implemented preventative measures against the coronavirus and discover the up-to-date restrictions for your intended destination.
