Covid-19 Travel Restrictions for TGW Destinations

Covid-19 has hampered everyone’s 2020 travel plans. Flights have been grounded and most countries’ borders have been closed for tourists. Countries that were affected by the pandemic earlier and have it under control are already starting to open their borders. Here is a list of TGW Travel Group destinations based on the Covid-19 Travel Restrictions per country.
Please keep in mind that requirements and restrictions can change at anytime without notice and this article is only for general informational purposes only. It is recommended to  speak with your closest consulate of the destination you are traveling to before booking in order to ensure you have the correct and most up to date information in this rapidly changing environment. Additionally it is important to check with your home country & state and city of residence to see if there is also a quarantine in effect upon your return back home from any of these countries.  We do not endorse traveling against government travel advisories and recommend that you consult with your physician prior to traveling during the pandemic.

All passengers need to fill out the online migration form called “Check-Mig” between 24 hours and 1 hour before the flight. This form will help pre-screen arrivals and speed up time at customs. Download CoronApp to self-report your health throughout the duration of your trip.
