Travel Restrictions & Resources Master Thread
« on: September 17, 2020, 10:16:52 PM »
At times it can excruciatingly difficult to understand travel rules. The various government agencies responsible for forming and enforcing policies are often very inept in communicating them. I suggest we form a MT to list the best resources.


IATA: https://www.iatatravelcentre.com/world.php

AA, with links to relevant government agencies

The local US Embassy website will often have a pretty detailed breakdown of prevailing guidelines, and sometimes the local airline is a good place to check.

This is what many airlines use. It is free and I believe more accurate than IATA many times. And now that IATA started charging, I find it ever more useful.


https://www.traveldoc.aero/


[it was developed by ICTS Europe and this is their description:
TravelDoc is a bespoke software system that verifies passengers' international travel documentation, including visa requirements.

Developed in-house, TravelDoc quickly and efficiently checks documentation against travel restrictions imposed on the passenger by the authorities in the transit or destination country. An online Travel Document Rule Library (APP or Web) that displays each country's immigration, health and safety, and customs rules is also available.

Key functionalities include:

A clear Go/No Go indication along with clear instructions as to the documents needed
Real-time online updates of travel rules information]

Nowadays the airlines all have internal rules & help lines and don’t follow any of these programs

To what extent would it curb spread? What it would accomplish most is keeping strains more localized.

I want to know who is really pushing out the policies in the Biden administration. I just don't feel like it's actually him pushing all this.

Does anyone know the restrictions in place for Rwanda? It seems like they make you quarantine for 72 hours upon arrival, I'm trying to verify that

Are their land borders are open? Also, do they expect to have a significant % of their population vaccinated within 3-4 months like Israel did?

I want to travel to the Bahamas and I see that I would need an RT-PCR test taken 5 days prior to departure and after I have the results I would need to upload it to the Bahamian government's travel website and request a travel visa which can take 48 hours for approval, can anyone recommend a testing site in Boro Park that can get me same day results on a RT-PCR test?
