Not a restriction per se, but in the midst of spiralling COVID-19 cases in its midst, China Airlines has apparently suspended many of its flights to and from LAX, SFO, and YVR in the upcoming two weeks.
Guess EU will publish a list soon if they can agree. My guess is that US will be on the list. The rest will be similar to the latest Latvian entry restriction. This is only my guess!
In Netherland travel for non-essential purposes has been permitted for arrivals from the following seven third countries:
"The authorities of Latvia will now allow persons who have completed the vaccination against the COVID-19 to skip self-isolation when they enter the country.
In a press release issued by the Latvian Ministry of Transport, it was pointed out that all persons returning from a European Union or European Economic Area country, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom will be exempt from the self-isolation requirement.
However, the testing requirements for all those vaccinated still remain in place. Everyone is required to present a negative COVID-19 test result not older than 72 hours."
Are you certain this is the actual requirement? I think any of the NAAT-type tests qualifies, not all of them rolled into one.
From NL govt:
Type of test: the test used must be a molecular NAAT (PCR) test (either PCR, RT PCR, LAMP, TMA or mPOCT). No other type of test, including antigen tests and serological tests (blood tests to detect antibodies), is valid;
At this time, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, you must book and pay for a 3-night hotel stopover before you arrive in Canada . You’ll stay at the government-authorized hotel while you await your arrival test results
Just wait. The Order in Council that mandates hotel quarantine is about to expire. There’s also a court chase challenging it scheduled for early June. The folks over at FlyerTalk are pretty informed on this issue: Canada Covid-19 hotel quarantine - FlyerTalk Forums
I am in the US right now. Left last week. There is so much vaccine here it’s crazy. Got my first Pfizer jab within hours of landing at SFO. They’re playing radio ads basically begging the people who still haven’t been vaxxed to do so, and there are now even contests to try to encourage vaccination.
Yes, I’m a US citizen but the information about eligibility is crystal clear.
Do I need to be a California resident to get COVID-19 vaccine?
No. Vaccine distribution is based on eligibility irrespective of residency or immigration status.
If you have a way to get into the US I am far more confident (99.9999999999999% certain) you can easily get a jab than I am hopeful the situation in TW is going to get better quickly.
