The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has created a free online interactive world map with the latest COVID-19 entry regulations by country. The map relies on IATA’s Timatic database, which contains comprehensive information on documentation required for international travel. To help travelers keep updated on how COVID-19 is impacting countries around the world, Timatic is updated more than 200 times per day to provide accurate travel restrictions.
‘’As the aviation industry prepares to safely restart, travelers will need to know which countries’ borders are open and what health restrictions exist. Travelers can rely on Timatic for comprehensive and accurate information on travel during the pandemic,’’ said Anish Chand, IATA’s assistant director, Timatic, in a statement.
In a recent survey conducted by IATA regarding concerns people have about air travel post-crisis, more than 80 percent said they are as concerned about potential quarantine restrictions as they are about actually catching the virus during travel. With the uncertainties and quickly changing health restrictions from one country to the next during the pandemic, this new resource is invaluable.
