Is there an easy, systematic and / or reliable way to know what the covid-related conditions are, for flying to an arbitrary country, at an arbitrary time?
I'm specifically looking to fly from UK to USA in February 2023. However, when I came to ask my question, and searched existing questions, it is clear that many people are asking this same question, with the only variations being departure place, destination and time of travel.
When one tries to find out information, either from airline websites or government official sites, the information can be out-of-date or obfuscated and difficult to parse out. Particularly on the difference between "advice" and "requirement".
For example, travelling between UK and Ireland is 100% test-free, vaccine-free, no-nothing. It's like pre-covid. But booking on RyanAir still shows pages such as "Have your covid declaration ready." Luckily both gov.uk and gov.ie are quite clear about dropped requirements. Not all government sites are as easy to navigate.
So I thought I would ask this question for the general case:
- How to easily and reliably know what you do or don't need to do?
- Is there a centralised place for this info?
- Is there a canonical website / URL to visit for a given destination?
