Every country is currently deciding who will be allowed entry and who will not as a result of the spread of COVID-19.
Enacting restrictions on travel and immigration has proven necessary to attempt to control this public health disaster as much as possible.
People can endlessly debate the virtue of different tactics that countries use, but the reality of the fact is that different countries have different travel restrictions and they often change rapidly.
Check beFore you go
Recent news shows that some countries have enacted bans on travelers from certain parts of the world.
Some may only ask to see proof of vaccination and/or the results of a PCR test or a corona test kit while others have enacted strict travel bans regardless of test or vaccination results.
It is best for all travelers to check on the status of travelers from certain areas coming to any given country.
What’s a traveler to do?
It has become so burdensome to travel that people are not as interested in moving about the world like they once did.
The biggest fear is that one may travel to another country and then not be able to leave if cases in either place climb too high.
This possibility is a legitimate fear, and it is one that will not necessarily fade away anytime soon.
Would-be travelers at this time need to accept all of the risks that come along with doing so at present.
It's a personal choice that some people will still go through with because they don't want to give up on their dreams of traveling around the world.
Getting baCk to normal
There are likely to be impacts felt from the COVID-19 outbreak for years.
Ways of doing business once considered entirely normal in the past will not exist at all in the future.
But many people have adjusted to the change, and learned to work from home, to cook from home, to explore locally, and even save money, so it's not all doom and gloom - and we can all get through this together!
