Travel in Times of Covid 19th January 2022

There is no doubt about it, travelling abroad takes a bit more time and effort at the moment but with a bit of research and some simple planning it's not too difficult.

Best sources of information:
•    UK FCDO site. Look at ‘Entry Requirements’ selection for selected country.
•    International Association of Travel Agents
•    Check with your destination country's own website.
•    Verify App.

Airlines get fined if passengers have incorrect documentation so expect them to be thorough with their pre-flight document checks.

You just need to be organised and in general you need:
•    Proof of double vaccination. On an App and hard copy useful. NHS Covid Pass App needs to be refreshed every 30 days.
•    Proof of a negative PCR test - 48 to 72 hrs prior to airline check-in.    
•    Complete a pre-travel health form - often via an App.
•    Proof of Covid health insurance cover (generally circa $50,000).

There are a few countries such as India and Thailand who currently insist on quarantine for 5 or 7 days. Thailand has introduced a Sandbox system where one has to quarantine at one of four locations.
