Restrictions for travellers in connection with COVID-19 pandemic

Restrictions for travellers in connection with COVID-19 pandemic

We know that the circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic result in uncertainty. Regardless of whether you plan to travel soon or the people closest to you currently stay abroad. Especially that it is hard to access verified information in an easy and fast way. We completely understand your concerns and the need to stay updated at all times.

That's why we created a special website on which we gather information regarding countries introducing restrictions on travelling. This article is updated on a daily basis and includes announcements concerning the possibility to move around (international and domestic flights) and crossing the borders of individual countries.

In case you need to travel, we recommend checking the information on websites of local authorities and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
