Not Immune to Confusion: Do You Need a Vaccine to Travel?
Tuesday, 6th July 2021

Changes to COVID-19 travel-related guidelines occur every day and add to that, traffic light systems and news about new variants, and it’s no wonder that so many travelers find planning a trip a daunting task.

According to a survey of more than 2,000 people by PCR testing company, Cignpost ExpressTest, 18% were clear about what test they would need to travel, and only 8% knew the test they would need to take on their return.

You can book your travel to Melbourne, Australia in the morning; and by that evening, the state may be in lockdown. Now, add to the complexity - vaccinations, testing and COVID recovery. Any of these factors can change travel-related guidelines.

For example, in the European Union, several member states are beginning to allow travelers with an EU COVID-19 certificate - meaning they have been vaccinated, tested negative or have recovered from COVID - to travel throughout Europe without the need to quarantine or test for COVID-19.

Contrast that with a trip to New Zealand and it all changes. Even fully vaccinated travelers must quarantine for 14 days and obtain a negative COVID-19 test. Where you are traveling from and traveling to matters, along with so many other factors.

Fortunately, there are tools available that can greatly simplify the travel experience during the pandemic like CWT Travel Essentials. Just recently, we enhanced our site to include several new features, one of which includes a filter for fully vaccinated or unvaccinated travelers. Based upon the status that’s chosen, the guidelines and restrictions will change. You’ll find a simple list of required travel documentation that can be downloaded or completed online.

Travel during the COVID-19 pandemic is already stressful enough with long lines at the airports, masks, and additional admin.
