A General Summary From Our VP of Global Trip Support - Dec. 11, 2020

While the world-wide restrictions for flying are far from over, the past three months have seen a steady increase in the number of countries opening up their borders. Of the approximate 246 countries, islands, and commonwealths tracked by World Fuel Services, approximately 120 are now open with and without restrictions. 

Common Restrictions

There are a few countries that are open and have no restrictions. In contrast, most of the 120 have requirements for negative COVID tests within an acceptable range of time before arrival at a given port of entry of that country. Some countries require it to be submitted in advance through an online form, and others by sending a picture of the negative test. In some countries, crew and/or passengers of business aircraft are exempt from COVID tests on arrival if approved for legitimate business in that country.

We see country lockdowns for a second time (England & Italy), but immediately open back up with new restrictions. We see additional European countries (Finland & Hungary) open up to business aircraft for the first time since the shutdown. Currently, Africa as a region has more countries open (with restrictions). Except for some countries (Guam, South Korea, Brunei), the Asia/Pacific region continues to lead the world's region for closed borders to help contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

How to Get More Information

World Fuel is tracking each country through our COVID-19 resource page. Those open will be marked as such on the country line; whether the country is open or closed, use the "+" symbol to view the most recent status of that country.

Our global trip support team is proactively working to keep the information on our resource page current. If you have any questions about a country, please do not hesitate to contact World Fuel Trip Support at [email protected]

Sincerely,

Jeff Briand
