covid 19 – I have a transit that will pass by CGK airport on 25 Jan 2021

Airlines sell tickets through multiple channels (both online and offline), and they are not required to verify each passenger’s eligibility for entry or transit.

Moreover, it’s impossible to reliably check entry requirements for each individual passenger automatically. For instance, had you been an Indonesian citizen or resident with the same ticket, perhaps you would have been allowed to transit. Even check-in agents can get this task wrong and occasionally need to ask superiors or wrongly refuse people.

If there is a warning on the website, it’s usually generic, along the lines of “the passenger is responsible to comply with any entry or transit requirements”.

Your best bet is to ask the airline to reschedule your flight or rebook you on a different itinerary. One time, British Airways rebooked me for free when my ineligibility to transfer was discovered upon check-in. However, this is a courtesy, not an obligation, so make sure to ask nicely.

covid 19 – I have a transit that will pass by CGK airport on 25 Jan 2020

I am traveling from Cairo, Egypt to Sydney, Australia and I have a layover of 4 hours at CGK airport on 25 Jan 2020.

Ideally this shouldn’t be a problem, however Garuda Indonesia is stating on its website that transit is not permitted for foreigners from 15-25 Jan 2020 due to COVID-19.

My question is does this affect my flight or connections are not affected.

If it’s affected why does Turkish airlines sell this ticket in the first place without a warning.

transit – Colombo to Bahamas, transiting through Russia and Cuba, route details – passport only

I’m trying to find a “passport” only route from Sri Lanka to Bahamas (Nassau). I will be planning to spend about 3 months in the Bahamas. We are Sri Lankan nationality, have normal passport, will have return tickets (reverse route), negative COVID test within 72 hours.

I found the following route:

04/03: CMB (09:45) to SVO (16:15)
04/04: SVO (07:25) to HAV (12:30)
04/05: HAV (13:40) to NAS (15:10)

I looked at the travel requirements using the emirates tool. The only issue I can see is the “past 12am” layover at SVO and overnight layover at HAV. I don’t know if these transit areas are open 24 hours and if so, whether we can grab something to eat or if they have lounge chairs for rest.

Can someone advice if this route is possible?

lhr – Heathrow Airport: Terminal 2 to Terminal 5, can you transit without visa? (conflicting answers)

Yes you will need a visa, specifically the Visitor in Transit visa, but you may have a chance at transit-without-visa (as you fit some of the criteria there) although I wouldnt recommend just chancing it.

Being that your flight leaves the next day, you cannot stay in Heathrow terminals overnight as they close to passengers and there are no airside hotels at either terminal – this means that even though you can transfer airside between Terminal 2 and 5, you need to enter the UK to stay at a hotel before either of those terminals close for the night.

datv – Canada Transit Visa and UK Direct airside visa

You will need to provide them with your itinerary for them to issue you a transit visa in the first place. A Canadian transit visa is usually valid for 48 hours and the start of that duration will depend on the itinerary you provide. This has been answered here

The U.K. DATV will also depend on your itinerary. In fact if you need one will also depend on your itinerary and your passport. So furnishing more details will help.

international travel – Do I need negative covid test for transit through France (CDG)

I have booked Santiago, Chile (SCL) – Paris (CDG) – Manchester, UK (MAN) for Dec 30. Both arriving and departing flights from France are in terminal 2E at Charles de Gaulle.
However, it’s not clear to me if I need a covid test or not.

The airline, Air France, gives me this message (my bolds)

Updated on 24 December 2020, 03:00 PM Paris local time
Air France has been informed of the new decree specifying the conditions of entry or transit in France and Overseas Territories.
This particularly concerns the acceptance of antigenic tests, which must now enable the detection of N protein of SARS-CoV-2.
These new conditions only concern antigenic tests, there is no change concerning other tests such as PCR or RT-Lamp.
The list of all tests accepted is available on the following French Health website

However, going by this info

  • If you are transiting for less than 24 hours in an international zone;

I am led to believe I don’t need anything more than a couple of declarations to be on my way? The transit is around 5 hours. This is my first time flying though and I’m not sure what counts as an international zone. I suppose by not exiting terminal 2E I am never really entering France?

I will be using my Italian passport by the way, and I must enter the UK before Dec 31st at 11pm due to brexit, in case anyone was wondering about this ridiculous trip I’m forced to make in such convoluted times.

transit – Transiting France from UK to Switzerland (December 2020)

At the present time, entry into France is restricted.

You are allowed to enter France from the UK to go to Switzerland only if:

  • you are are a French national
  • you are a citizen of the EU, the UK, Switzerland (and a few other countries) and your main residence is in France or you are crossing France to reach your country of nationality or residence.
  • you hold an EU residence permit or long-stay visa and your main residence is in France or you are crossing France to reach your residence in the European space.
  • you are transiting for less than 24 hours in an international zone (most likely not applicable to you).

There are a few other possible reasons but they are quite specific.

So, in your case, since you are a EU citizen, you are only allowed to cross France to go to Switzerland if you are a Swiss resident (or if you also hold Swiss citizenship, or are French).

In addition to the conditions, as you are arriving from the UK, you need to:

  • have a negative test less than 72 hours old
  • fill and carry a sworn declaration that you do not have any symptoms and have not been in contact with a confirmed case in the previous 14 days
  • fill and carry an exempted international movement certificate for travel to metropolitan France

All documents and additional details are available here.

Once you fulfil all those conditions, you can indeed stay overnight while on your way. You should however note that lots of hotels are currently closed, all restaurants and bars are closed, and wearing a face mask is compulsory indoors (except in your room) and in many places outdoors as well. You are also not allowed outside between 8 pm and 6 am (curfew in place).

Note that all these requirements are the same whether you stay overnight or not.

Note also that current Tier 3 and 4 restrictions in the UK may also prevent you from travelling, and there may also be additional restrictions for Switzerland: I only covered the requirements to enter France for transit.
