The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has introduced a new concept;
an online interactive world map in order to provide latest Covid-19 entry
regulations to the travelers. It relies on IATA’s Timatic database which contains
comprehensive information on documentation required for international travel
which was made by government.
Timatic is updating more than 200 times per day to provide accurate travel
restrictions specific to the current pandemic. It is based on one’s citizenship and
country of residence. The aviation industry prepares to safely restart, in this time
travelers need to know which countries’ borders are open and what health
restrictions exist over there.
This strategy will be helpful for travel with new update as there is the uncertainties
and quickly changing health restrictions from one country to the next during the
pandemic. Timatic offering will be a vital tool for travelers who need easy access
to accurate information on entry requirements in contemporary crisis.
