With the well-ordered world of travel totally disrupted by COVID-19 travel restrictions, new solutions have quickly developed to track what’s open, what’s not, and what travelers must do to thread the needle from Point A to Point B.
The need to keep up with all the well-intentioned but constantly changing – and frequently confusing – restrictions, quarantines, testing protocols and individual requirements is putting a premium on accurate travel information, prompting more travel organizations to offer easy ways for travelers to stay up to date. Here are just a few of them.
The International Air Transport Association is providing a free online interactive world map showing the latest COVID-19 entry regulations by country. The map uses the organization’s Timatic database to show information on documentation needed for international travel. The system updates more than 200 times a day showing accurate travel restrictions to specific areas based on citizenship and country of residence.

American Airlines has launched a new online solution that allows customers to see the current coronavirus travel guidelines and restrictions for the airline’s domestic and international destinations. The travel guide can be accessed at aa.com on the travel updates page, under the Travel Restrictions section. When a destination is entered, results will show up-to-date guideline information, as well as travel requirements such as face coverings, health documentation and quarantine rules.
