A great man, the Dalai Lama said, “Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.” I guess his statement is true in every sense: travel helps you learn, grow and experiment with new things. Who does not like traveling? It is a part of our lives.

The COVID- 19 pandemic forced us to stay at home for almost two years. But after the rise in vaccinations, things seem to be getting back to normal. But, my dear friend COVID, it’s not over yet, and travel continues to be risky and complicated in many parts of the world. 

Imagine, you are planning to travel abroad to visit your favorite city, and at the airport, you are asked to get quarantined. Nightmare! I am sure you don’t want this to happen! Therefore, to avoid such a situation, you must check the guidelines of the place you are planning to visit. But how will you navigate the changing COVID restrictions? No worries! You just have to read this blog to get your answers. So, here we go! 

 

Where Can You Check the Changing Guidelines?

Is it safe to book a holiday during this critical situation? Yes, it is! But before you head towards your destination, you must know the guidelines. So, we have got a list where you can check the guidelines you must be aware of. 

 

The U.S. Department of State’s Guidelines

Keep checking the U.S Department of State’s guidelines website. It is an easy-to-navigate website that documents entry requirements for U.S residents and citizens around the globe. 

 

Email Alerts 

The U.S. has a traveler registration program called the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, which sends you alerts related to safety concerns, local embassy updates, and changing COVID restriction updates. Like in the U.S, every country has these types of services. You can sign up for the country you are planning to visit. This will help you to be aware of the possible changes before or during your trip. 

 

Navigate changing restrictions

 

Read News 

Reading the news will help you learn about things happening around the world. The news massively covers the stories about the changing restrictions and updates about the situation in other countries. Reading them will help you be aware of the probability of changing restrictions. Make sure you read them from official websites, news portals, and trustworthy newspapers.

 

Cross-Check Everything 

Don’t believe in humor! Not only in this case, but it is also a lifelong tip. Always double-check everything someone tells you and make sure you get it in writing. It is good to identify every rule to make sure that nothing gets missed or messed up. 

 

Remember Safety Comes  First 

Now, when you have made the plan and can’t wait to step out. Who am I to stop you? But remember safety first. Therefore, I recommend you follow these steps to protect yourself and others when you travel: 

  • Opt for travel insurance plans. 

  • Plan ahead.

  • Don’t travel if you feel unhealthy. 

  • Get yourself vaccinated. 

  • Be in constant touch with your healthcare provider. 

  • Avoid crowded places.

  • Regularly disinfect the surfaces of phones, keys, switches, etc.

  • Wear a face mask.

  • Cover coughs and sneezes. 

  • Don’t touch frequently touched surfaces.

  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick.

  • Often clean your hands.

  • Don’t eat or drink on public transport. 

 

Things to Carry While Traveling 

You must be aware of the things you have to carry while traveling. But the pandemic has changed the world and so have the things we carry.

 Therefore, remember to have: 

  • Face masks.

  • Alcohol-based sanitizer.

  • Covid-status certificate.

  • First-aid kit.

  • Disinfectant wipes.

  • Hand gloves 

  • Some packed food.

What Should You Do When Back Home? 

After you are home, make sure to follow the guidelines and requirements of your national and local authorities. If you find any symptoms, seek medical advice and stay quarantined until you have a negative test.

 

Conclusion 

No matter whether you are traveling within your country or abroad. If you are traveling for a holiday, you must follow the guidelines and keep yourself and those around you protected. Moreover, be flexible enough to change your travel plans if the infection is high or you feel unwell. Lastly, stay safe, follow guidelines, and enjoy your trip!
