The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has published an interactive map detailing individual country’s Covid-19 entry regulations.

The map uses IATA’s Timatic database, which contains comprehensive information on documentation required for international travel.

The Association says that the database is currently being updated over 200 times per day “to provide accurate travel restrictions specific to the current pandemic, based on one’s citizenship and country of residence”.

In addition, travellers can subscribe to real time notifications for all travel updates related to the pandemic, again powered by the Timatic database.

The release follows a recent IATA survey which showed that over 80 per cent of travellers were “as concerned about potential quarantine restrictions as they are about actually catching the virus during travel”.

Commenting on the news Anish Chand, IATA’s Assistant Director, Timatic, said:

‘’As the aviation industry prepares to safely restart, travellers will need to know which countries’ borders are open and what health restrictions exist. Travellers can rely on Timatic for comprehensive and accurate information on travel during the pandemic.

‘’We support the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) guidelines to harmonize the measures to keep people safe while traveling and provide the confidence to open borders without quarantine measures. And this Timatic offering will be a vital tool for travellers who need easy access to accurate information on entry requirements.”
