Many nations are enacting stringent travel restrictions or travel bans, and new policies are being implemented daily. It’s common to request proof of a negative Covid-19 test before being allowed on an international flight. The IATA is also maintaining a comprehensive country-by-country list of Covid-19 restrictions on travel.

Most commercial airlines have reduced routes because of the pandemic. In addition, several hotels, restaurants, and attractions around the world have put restrictions in place to avoid large gatherings.
