Travelling During Covid-19 – Make Sure To Fill Out Passenger Locator Forms in Advance

shutterstock_Greece during covid-19

Travelling overseas anytime soon? Make sure you fill out the passenger locator forms before you travel to ensure you are not denied entry.

Most countries have introduced Passenger Locator Forms to help manage and trace Covid-19 cases, but did you know that in some cases you need to fill these out 48 hours before you fly? You may be denied boarding at the airport or refused entry to a country if you have not filled out the locator form in time.

Some countries require you to print documentation and have it with you when you arrive, while others they want you to complete the form online – even Ireland’s Passenger Locator Form needs to filled out online.

However, it it important to note that the information below are guidelines only from my own personal research – policies are changing on a daily basis and need to be confirmed by you before you travel.
 

 

 
Many countries also require you to produce a negative PCR or Antigen test if you are not vaccinated. However, it is imperative that you check with the country you are travelling to before your departure to ensure that you are following the correct entry guidelines.
