World situation. General considerations
It is an almost generalized concept that each passenger must have a complete vaccination certificate against Coronavirus (some countries only accept vaccines approved by the WHO), RT-PCR or antigen test results within 48 hours of boarding (some require 24 hours), filling out a form and affidavit of health, COVID-19 vaccination certificate, in addition to complying with the protocols of distancing, hand washing and use of masks. Some countries accept unvaccinated residents, although a 7-day quarantine is required in addition to the negative test.
But also, in the situation of constant changes, it is always important to consult and finalize details with the airline and also, if necessary, with the airport, as well as in the case of international flights with the embassy or consulate near the final destination, as well as the countries involved in flight stopovers.
In this sense, it is useful to review the International Map of the current restrictions of each country.
