Travel Information

Many locations around the world are opening their borders for travel, with varying restrictions, as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. These restrictions are fluid and often change with little warning. 

All international air travel requires a valid passport for every passenger traveling, even newborns. For some countries, the passport simply needs to be valid for the entirety of your stay in the country. Some countries, though, require passports to be valid for a fixed period beyond your scheduled stay in the country, and others require a certain number of blank pages in your passport. Others still require a tourist and/or transit visa, even if you are only connecting through one of their airports en route to another country. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, a good rule of thumb is to ensure your passport both is valid for at least six months beyond the end of your trip would end and has at least one or two blank pages remaining before travel.

Fair Winds Travel does its utmost to inform passengers about the most current travel information, but ultimately the responsibility lies with the traveler to ensure information is accurate and up to date for the country in question. For international travel, please check with the embassy or consulate of the nation to which you are traveling for the most up to date information. The State Department and Centers for Disease Control also offer dedicated travel pages for U.S. citizen travelers.
