Safe travel requirements:
It's your responsibility to ensure you have all the necessary documentation and have had any required vaccinations and health checks prior to departure. Please ensure that you are aware of current conditions and travel restrictions at your time of travel and allow time to obtain any tests if required.
In most cases, testing must be conducted at an accredited testing facility, though with the changing of regulations please check if a Rapid Antigen Test will be accepted. PCR test with certificate will attract additional fees. Only get tested through verified official testing centres. Scammers are taking advantage of travellers by charging for fake tests. If you're unsure where to get tested, contact the local health authority for advice.
You'll may still need to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result even if you've been vaccinated. If you've had a COVID-19 vaccine, you should carry your International Vaccination Certificate, along with your negative PCR test results, especially if you have one or more transit stops. Some destinations may ask for proof of testing and vaccination before allowing you to transit through or cross their border.
These guidelines are subject to change as the global situation evolves. The enforcement of certain measures (i.e. covid testing, social distancing, mask-wearing etc.) will vary in different regions. It's your responsibility to check with local health authorities for best practices in their region.
