Mask on: What does travelling Internationally look like right now?

It’s true, in some instances winter or summer as travel is once again possible! However, travelling during a pandemic comes with its own bag of challenges. Tourists shouldn’t expect things to be back to normal just yet as rules are continuing to vary across countries and regions. 

And while restrictions are easing, it’s important to remember that COVID-19 has not gone away and that we can travel, however, there are new rules to follow. Travellers should still expect to use their masks, especially on aeroplanes and in public places. Make sure you always have your MEO Lite face mask with an extra Helix Filter pack of 3 in your luggage or on you. 

It’s important to check with your embassies as well as the government and tourist websites for your destination for the latest travel rules. We have made it simpler for you by compiling a list of social-distancing and mask rules for six popular tourist destinations and their corresponding government website, for all the latest information.
