To further assist travellers and travel bookers obtain up-to-date travel and border restrictions for countries globally, a Where can I travel? (Covid) widget is available.
The widget’s advice provided by Riskline should be considered general as it does not consider the passport nationality(ies) of the traveller. As such, entry requirements including but not limited to Visas, COVID-19 and other Health conditions (e.g. Yellow Fever) may not be provided. Travel Check therefore is the recommended to be used to ensure all necessary information is obtained.
Riskline is a world-class travel risk intelligence company. Trusted by global travel management companies, small businesses and everyone in between, Riskline has been in operation since 2007 and is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Beyond their core of country and city risk assessments, Riskline closely tracked developments associated with COVID-19 since late 2019. Detailed information was gathered with real-time intelligence provided via alerts, API and the Riskline microsite.
