TRAVEL2021

Yes… we all need a trip… an escape from all this…

After so much pressure and forced confinement…
We want to stand under the refreshing rays of the sun… at sea with our loved ones…
Vaccinations have started and maybe a life-saving pill will be found.
Several vaccinations have already taken place but it has not been decided yet whether
airlines and governments will require the vaccine. Everything is constantly changing and
every airline, every country has its own requirements. There is an unprecedented confusion
for now and we have to remain healthy and need to be patient.
And yes in a little while everything will be fine like when we were children at that first hot
day we ran out for our first ice cream. It will be the day that the free movements and the
flights will be allowed… We will be able to go on a trip that we wanted so much or to our
favorite island or to that country we have always wanted to visit.
That will happen when the airports open and generally when we will be able to travel or to
move freely again safely. Because the competent authorities are constantly making new
decisions based on the epidemiological data and in order to avoid confusion and to deal with
everything easily, we must be constantly well informed by our travel agent or by valid
sources of information. These are:
  • The Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • The Ministry of Health
  • Embassy of the country of destination
  • Consulate of destination country
