Getting tested before your travel

There's no denying that you need a Covid-19 test before travelling, however, it completely depends on the destination where you're flying to, since there are a few destinations that do not require these reports. Each country has its own entry protocol, so you need to check the specific requirements of your country in advance. Moreover, each country has its own rules on whether a negative test report is required for children or not. For further details about the specific requirements of your destination, check the Foreign Travel Advice website (and do keep checking regularly, for, the requirements can be changed at short notice).

Also, please check with your airline if they are accepting home PCR tests because there are a few airlines that ask for a test taken in a clinical setting.
