COVID-19 Travel Restrictions
Date of last revision: 21 April 2022
What to know about international travel (restrictions)
The pandemic has forced the tourist industry to adapt to the new circumstances and the different regulations applied in each country or region. Homogenizing these requirements is difficult and perhaps an objective to establish for administrations and competent institutions, as we commented in this travel post about Unmissable Travel 2022 – Best Trips, Exclusive Programs, and Post-Covid Vacations.
For this reason, we want to bring together the different requirements necessary for the different destinations that Alandis Travel offers and clarify any doubts that customers may have.

Participants will need to provide their own face coverings for their trip. Alandis will provide plenty of hand sanitizer at important moments, such as while getting on and off transport, entering restaurants, etc. That said, it’s an excellent idea that participants bring their sanitizer too.
Are there additional health requirements I should be aware of?
Yes, it is often the case that individual destinations have specific requirements. Ultimately, participants are responsible for being aware of these requirements, guidelines, and rules. Nonetheless, Alandis Travel has created pages with guidelines for unique destinations you can consult here: Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico.
What happens if I fall ill on my program?
For the health and safety of all participants on our programs, we will perform temperature checks at the beginning of every trip and throughout as needed.
Anyone presenting a suspected case of COVID-19 will be required to be tested to continue participation in our program. If a member of our program has a confirmed case of COVID-19, we will follow the guidelines and requirements of the local governing board of health, including self-isolation or quarantine.
Please note that we will assist in ensuring that everyone receives the help and support they need. However, any expenses for testing, medical treatment, transportation, or extended self-isolation would be covered by the participant.
What happens if I am required to quarantine?
All participants of Alandis Travel programs travel with the coverage of medical insurance, which includes expenses for Covid-19 illness or isolation. It can be included in the program or included in your airline ticket in the case of U.S. citizens traveling to Cuba.
What is the guidance if I am traveling by air during COVID-19?
Coronavirus has presented new health safety challenges for air travel. EASA and ECDC issued the COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol defining measures to assure the health safety of air travelers.
