Why Should Avoid International Travel During COVID -19 Pandemic

Corona virus spread across the world. Most of the countries closed the doors for international travelers, and other countries are on the same way. In that case, if somebody is interested to travel internationally may have to face the problems like cancellation of flight, new PCR test, lockdown, quarantine and other rules of related countries. The effect of this problem will be on your budget, health, wastage of time and anxiety. And, most importantly, you will not enjoy the trip.

This article discusses what problems may arise during the travel in the coronavirus pandemic.

The Flight May be Cancelled

The flight can be cancelled or postponed at any time without any intimation to you. Then you may have to book another flight at higher prices. If this happens, then what about the refund of the booked flight. When and how much refund will I get back on the booked ticket? No guarantee. Sometimes the passengers of two flights can be clubbed together. That may be an inconvenience to you.

You Have to Undergo Quarantine

After arrival to other countries, you have to go under quarantine. Different countries have different quarantine periods. Without quarantine, your entry will be denied. That many days you have to spend in the hotel without any work. It may be a boring and difficult period. Those extra days may increase your financial expenditure.

Lockdown May be Imposed or Extended

At the present period, the majority of the countries across the world are suffering from the second wave of the corona virus. To prevent that condition, the countries impose the lockdown at any time without any intimation. The period of lockdown may vary and depends on that country. Maybe a second or third lockdown will be imposed one by one.

After Cancellation of Flight or Lockdown New Negative PCR Test Requires

Every country is asking about negative PCR test. That test must be done within the stipulated time of your arrival. If any flight is cancelled or rescheduled again, you have to do the PCT test before the new prescribed time. For that you have to run for finding the test center and may have to bear extra cost for that test. If your test report did not get on the right time, thenyour further travel plan may be delayed

What After Fully Vaccinated: Fully vaccinated people are at low risk of corona infection; that means you are not 100% safe. If you are fully vaccinated, then there is also a possibility of getting corona infection. If it is an unavoidable trip, then follow the safety recommendation.
