Returning Home

We recommend taking into account some considerations such as: 

  • Checking-in online if possible and taking your boarding pass to the airport on your mobile or printed
  • Arriving earlier than usual at the airport because the security checks and check-in process may be slower than usual
  • Bearing in mind that some airlines have restricted the amount of cabin baggage allowed
  • Your destination country will probably ask you for a record of your flight. We recommend checking the healthcare and documentation requirements of the country you are traveling to
