Travel Requirements are Slowly Lifting as the Tourism Industry Comes Back to Life!


Finally, after what seems like a century of being stuck at home, the world is opening back up as travel restrictions are slowly being lifted from country to country. Tourism boards are announcing exciting new travel opportunities, and people are planning their next big trip! 

Though the world of travel is coming back to life, it is still important to pay attention to the requirements of each country you are traveling to, as well as the requirements coming back to your own country, as there are still stipulations being required with travel across the board. For instance, there are certain requirements for entry to Austria from UK and vice versa. 

Here are the things to consider when traveling to another country at this time.

Vaccination Requirements

Many countries are now requiring that tourists be vaccinated before their trip. And many of these countries also have online portals for you to upload your vaccination information. So, be sure you check the vaccination requirements of any country before entering and upload your vaccine card information if need be. Certain countries only have restrictions for those entering from high-risk countries. So, be sure to pay attention to the status of your origin country and keep that in mind as you prepare for your trip

COVID Test Requirements

Many countries are required Negative COVID-19 test results for entry. Several of these countries are requiring this in place of a vaccination card, though others require both. So, be sure to read up on your country of origin and upload or bring your COVID-19 test results with you before you leave for your trip. While the requirements vary, most COVID-19 tests need to be PCR tests conducted through a valid laboratory and are required to be issues within 72 hours of the travel date. 

Visa Requirements 

Visa requirements from country to country are nothing new, however, be sure to check on the status of a visa requirement before planning a trip, as these requirements may have changed thanks to the pandemic. So, please keep this in mind! 

Return Requirements 

Travel requirements change on a country-by-country basis, so what you need to enter a country may not be what you need to return home. So be sure to not just pay attention to the country you are traveling to. Also research what is required of you to enter back into your home country from the country you are visiting. 


Of course, don’t forget to plan out your amazing vacation and ensure you get to see everything you want to see! For instance, if you’re traveling to Austria as a film buff, think about all the Austria Movie Locations you can visit for the best movie-filled vacation experience. From Mission Impossible filming at the Vienna State Opera to the gorgeous Upper Austrian and Salzburg areas showcased in The Sound of Music, there are many sites to see. So, with all the entry requirements, don’t let that distract you from the heart of your trip, and ensure you plan the best trip you could want for yourself! Enjoy your travels!
