IMPORTANT: The impact of the global COVID-19 epidemic on business aviation is fluid and evolving by the minute. While we do our best to keep this article current by adding additional information once it is received and confirmed, always check with your Universal Trip Support Team and local authorities for the most current information.

You can drill down into all country restrictions by accessing the new regional restrictions pages below or using the sidebar navigation to go directly to a specific country of interest.


COVID-19 Restriction Trends

August 7, 2020

GENERAL STATUS UPDATES:
A majority of the restrictions set to expire Aug 1 just extended to Sept 1 – no big surprise there.

In Europe, all the same access points are still available for U.S. operators – with Croatia, France, Ireland, Italy (with an invitation letter from a local business), Turkey and UK being the most popular.

Croatia continues to have the parking issues due to high demand. Traffic from the U.S. into France (via UK) also continues to increase.

Turkey and the UK remain popular and convenient jump points to a next destination with 48-hour test validity requirements. Universal Aviation has rapid PCR testing providers set up at both Universal Aviation and Universal Aviation Turkey.

This week, a number of African countries reopened.

TRENDS: More PCR testing requirements are being implemented both before arrival and/or upon arrival. There is also a growing trend of more countries requiring health screening and locator forms.

INSIGHTS: For all PCR testing, advise passengers and crew to have Passport Number, Driver’s License #/local ID #, and Full Name included on the test results. An increasing number of countries are requiring this. It is a general best practice to avoid potential issues. Testing providers should be able to accommodate this with no issues. Also, note that the validity window that countries issue is usually based on swab date/time, not results date/time.

July 31, 2020

A good number of countries have restrictions set to expire August 1. As a result, updates have been steadily coming in over the past couple days. So far, we’re mostly seeing extensions along with revisions in entry requirements—especially with new requirements for PCR testing and locator forms for entry.

BIGGEST CHANGE: Brazil is now WIDE OPEN. If you have a need to operate there, we have offices all over Brazil to help, and they are following our COVID-19 health and safety standards that we’ve implemented across all Universal Aviation FBO Ground Services locations.

TRENDS: We continue to see growing demand for travel into the Mediterranean region. In addition, we’re finding that Italy really isn’t that hard to get into if you have a documented business purpose (e.g., models have been allowed entry with just a letter from a local company), and a quarantine isn’t required.

Latvia and Portugal can also now be accessed. More details on all of these are in the Europe section below.

July 24, 2020

Overall, there really haven’t been many major changes this week versus last. Mid-month and end of month is typically when we see the most movement, so next week you can expect more updates (likely the weekend of August 1).

The same access points for Europe are still available for U.S. travelers—including Turkey, the UK, France (via UK), Croatia and others listed below.

 If you are struggling to meet the 48-hr. PCR test requirement (e.g., to enter Croatia), we can assist with testing through both Universal Aviation Turkey and our FBO at London-Stansted. At London, we can actually do the test inside the FBO which has been really convenient for travelers. Passengers just need to quarantine for length of stay in the UK before heading to their next destination.

July 17, 2020

In general, we’re seeing a mix of some countries slightly retightening, while others are continuing a phased reopening.

The European Commission dropped 2 countries from its Safe List, but these are just recommendations for countries to follow. France has actually become more accessible to the U.S. and other countries. I’ve included an explanation in the Europe section below.

In addition, some emerging macro trends we’re seeing:

  • One Test to rule them all – Many countries are requiring proof of a negative C19 test to enter, but not any test will do. The gold standard is the PCR test. More countries are turning away passengers who are taking the Rapid or antibody tests.
  • The 48hr testing hurdle – A lot of EU countries require that the PCR test be taken within 48 hours of arrival. This is challenging for overseas travelers (like from the U.S.) and/or travelers where it takes longer than 24-36 hours to get the results (also like the U.S.). The workaround…we’ve secured a C19 PCR testing provider through our FBO at London-Stansted. Land in the UK, get your test, go on to your next European destination (subject to what the restrictions will allow.)
  • Policing of quarantine violations – We’re hearing more reports from customers that authorities are checking on self-declared residences/hotels to make sure visitors are abiding by local quarantining requirements. Similarly, there are a lot of accounts of “social policing” of quarantine violations, like these reports from Ireland. Safest best…respect the local requirements and avoid becoming a headline.

August 7, 2020


United States

  • The U.S. remains excluded from the EC’s Safe List. However, many European countries are still accepting U.S. flights and/or passengers under substantiated business conditions.
  • There is a CDC clearance that’s done in addition to CBP clearance. It involves a temperature check, a form to complete, and listening to guidance from CDC on quarantine requirements. Process takes about 5-10 min.
  • Advise passengers to continue maintaining a 14-day travel history log of the countries and states they visit. This is critical for both travel into the U.S. and travel within it.
  • For all PCR testing, advise passengers and crew to have Passport Number, Driver’s License, and Full Name included on the test results. An increasing number of countries are requiring this.
  • Restrictions on non-essential travel for USA/Canada/Mexico land borders are in place until Aug. 20, 2020.
  • The U.S. is still restricting the same list of countries since Brazil was added on May 24.
  • DHS currently has 15 approved airports for funneling.
  • Foreign crew are permitted entry into the U.S. but must enter via the funneled airports. We know there have been cases where flights have entered via a non-funneled airport. This is due to some wording issues in CBP’s internal guidance on the official Presidential Proclamation.
  • Hawaii, USVI, Puerto Rico, and parts of Mexico (Los Cabos, Cancun, Cozumel, etc.) are all good options for travelers from the U.S., with some restrictions and/or quarantining at a vacation home/rental.
  • Hawaii – Pre-arrival testing program set to start September 1 (unless it is further delayed). All travelers arriving in Hawaii are still required to quarantine for 14 days.
  • Puerto Rico – Open to foreign tourism. Flights from outside of the islands or United States must still funnel through the 15 U.S. mainland DHS approved airports. Travel declaration for required. Negative COVID test required to avoid quarantine.
  • USVI – Requires a negative COVID test within five days of arrival or a positive antibody test within four months for all travelers arriving from state with high numbers of COVID infections. See details online.
  • Alaska – A negative COVID-19 PCR test 72 hours before will exempt visitors from quarantine. Details online.
  • Florida – Governor DeSantis directed all individuals entering the state of Florida from the New York Tri-State Area (Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York) to isolate or quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into Florida or the duration of the individual’s presence in Florida, whichever is shorter. This includes persons entering Florida by roadways. Read more online.
  • New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut – Require travelers from 30+ states to undergo mandatory quarantine. It doesn’t apply to crew or “any individual passing through designated states for a limited duration (i.e., less than 24 hours) through the course of travel.” The onus to comply is on the individual, and it is not being actively policed as far as we can tell. We have not heard from any operator that the restrictions have caused issues with travel. Read the official travel advisory for New York online.
  • Other U.S. states/districts/cities with various forms of quarantine for people entering include: Arizona, D.C., Chicago, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Again, we have not heard of any enforcement of these measures.
  • The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and associated travelers utilizing ESTA are unaffected by the April 23 Presidential Proclamation which suspended processing new immigration applications from aliens for 60 days. New applications for signatory carrier status under VWP are still being processed. All U.S.-based operators (including some international companies with U.S. subsidiaries) and non-U.S. commercial operators are eligible to apply. If you are not a signatory carrier and qualify, we recommend you apply to increase your operating flexibility. We can help.
  • The National Interest Waiver (NIW) is another avenue foreign nationals can seek for entry into the U.S. and can be an effective means of entry. Note: Requires U.S. Embassy approval. We can provide consultation.
  • See detailed restrictions for the U.S.

Canada

  • Officials in Canada extended a ban on entry for most nonresident foreign nationals until further notice as part of the measures to curb the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
  • Canada is currently included on the EC’s recommended 15-country safe list.
  • Restrictions on non-essential travel for USA/Canada/Mexico is in place until Aug. 21, 2020. Read the official announcement. CANPASS / CBSA (CANADA) is by far the most stringent enforcer of this policy in regards to air travel.
  • Flights from the U.S. are being allowed on a case-by-case basis. Some are getting through without issue; others are getting denied. Canada is very strict on vetting “essential” vs. “non-essential” travel between the U.S. and Canada. Best practice is to gather all relevant documentation (e.g., travel history, medical declarations, purpose of flight, etc.) and seek approval from CANPASS well in advance. Canada is still restricting entry to 4 ports. Consult with us for any planned mission.
  • Prepare for long wait times…It takes 30 min+ to get in touch with someone at CANPASS to explain your purpose of flight before getting permission. When you make your 1st initial call to present the details of the flight, it must be no earlier than 48 hours prior and no later than 2 hours prior to departure. CANPASS will determine if your travel is essential or not and will either approve or deny operations into Canada.
  • Note that Canada has very strict quarantine requirements for anyone entering the country. Crew will need to quarantine for length of stay, up to 14 days.
  • See detailed restrictions for Canada.

Mexico

  • There is a new no-touch Covid-19 health assessment form, which is required on arrival/departure. Present the QR code the form provides once completed. A 14-day quarantine at residence may be necessary; however, popular tourist zones in the typical vacation cities (e.g., Cancun, Los Cabos, PV, Cozumel) are excluded.
  • Restrictions on non-essential travel for USA/Canada/Mexico land borders remain in place until Aug 20, 2020.
  • Non-essential flights are being allowed on an airport-by-airport, case-by-case basis. Most of the usual tourist hotspots are allowing leisure flights (such as Cancun, PV, Los Cabos, Cozumel), but you’ll want to research hotel/overnight options.
  • Our ground handing teams in Mexico (Mexico City/Toluca, Los Cabos, Cancun, Cozumel, PV, Monterrey, etc.) are available to support your missions.
  • See our complete list of restrictions and feasibility insights for Mexico. >

Caribbean

  • Most Caribbean islands have re-opened to international passengers with varying degrees of restrictions. Expect frequent changes as they continue to work out their processes.
  • Antigua and Barbuda – Open. Requires approval before operating, Proof of a negative COVID test taken within seven days required.
  • Aruba – Aruba is accepting flights from the U.S. Stricter requirements are being enforced for travelers from U.S. states with a high incidence of COVID-19 cases. Travelers from these states have to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test prior to traveling to Aruba via the digital Embarkation-Disembarkation Card (ED card); they will not be able to use testing facilities at the airport upon arrival. These states are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
  • Bahamas – All islands of the Bahamas, with exception of Grand Bahamas, are open to private international flights, charters, pleasure craft and yachts from all countries including the United States. Travelers arriving via private aircraft do not have to quarantine if they submit an online health form and have a negative COVID-19 test less than 7 days old. There will be temperature screening upon arrival. Note that many hotels and restaurants remain closed. Note: The country is officially on lockdown from Aug. 4-20, so travel within Bahamas and local services are highly limited.
  • Barbados – Open to international passengers. Requires negative test taken within 72 hours prior to departure.
  • Bermuda – As of Aug. 4, officials require all individuals entering Bermuda to seek government authorization by filling a form not less than 48 hours prior to scheduled arrival in the country.

  • See our complete list of country-by-country restrictions and feasibility insights for Central and South America. >

Europe

  • Our FBOs and ground handling offices in Ireland, UK, France, Greece, Italy, Spain and Turkey are all open and supporting missions.
  • At this stage, Europe is pretty much open to Europe.
  • Most EU countries are allowing business travel (e.g., your principal is considering investing in a local business), even for nationals not on the EC safe list. If you can state your case, there may be a way in.
  • The current EC safe list for reopening Europe to third countries has been reduced to 13 countries (with China being subject to reciprocity). Serbia and Montenegro have been removed.
  • Keep in mind these are just recommendations, and each EU member state has considerable autonomy to manage its own travel restrictions as it chooses.
  • There are still a number of European countries allowing citizens from countries not on the EC’s list – See below.
  • The EC will announce its updated “safe list” on July 15.
  • European countries that are accessible to passengers from the U.S. and other countries not on the EC’s list include:
  • Belarus
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Croatia – Allowing entry based on economic interest or tourism. Our Universal Aviation offices in Italy are helping coordinate arrangements to enter Croatia for customers. COVID PCR test required for crew and pax 48 hours prior to ETA, or you will be quarantined for 14 days.
  • Denmark – U.S. citizen can get in with an invitation letter from a Danish company. Note this is a Schengen country.
  • France – France’s NOTAM is departure-based and not nationality-based. This significantly opens up access to third-country nationals (including U.S. citizens). As long as the aircraft first clears in another Schengen country or the UK before proceeding to France, third country nationals can enter France. We’ve been successful with a number of flights – coordinating between our Universal Aviation FBO in Stansted and Universal Aviation FBO in Paris to make these flights happen. A public Health Passenger Locator Form and Int’l Travel Certificate is required. PCR testing also applies. Contact us for complete details.
  • Ireland – Our Universal Aviation offices in Dublin and Shannon can assist.
  • Italy – Third-country nationals (including U.S. citizens) can enter for business purposes with prior approval, and Universal Aviation Italy reports that Italian authorities have been approving many requests. Max ground time is 120 hours, and quarantine IS NOT required if the flight is approved. You’ll need a letter from a local business stating your business purposes to enter. If you have offices or business interests in Italy, you have a good chance of getting in. We’re seeing all kinds of business reasons being approved, ranging from meetings to modeling. We can help you navigate this process.
  • Latvia – Open with a 2-week quarantine or for length of stay up to 2 weeks. This is an EU Schengen country, but we aren’t recommending this as a primary access point into the rest of Europe since we don’t have offices here to help you navigate the regulatory process.
  • Moldova – Allowed for essential business with diplomatic approval.
  • Montenegro – Currently excluded from the EU “Safe List”.
  • Poland – Will accept intra-Schengen flights. If U.S. passengers can clear in another Schengen country (e.g., Denmark), they can get in.
  • Portugal – Accessible to third-country nationals (including U.S. citizens) coming from another Schengen country (except for Serbia) and holding appropriate visas (not required for U.S.). There are some nuances in making this work, and we can help you navigate through it.
  • Serbia – Currently excluded from the EU “Safe List”.
  • Slovenia
  • Turkey – One of the few countries open on the Mediterranean to Private/Business flights (including leisure) regardless the country of registration and/or nationality of passenger. No quarantine as long as passengers are symptom-free. Our Universal Aviation office in Turkey can provide assistance. We also now have a preferred fast PCR testing provider at Istanbul, Dalaman and Antalya for about $20 USD per test if you need to route to another country.
  • Ukraine – Open. Passengers have a 14-day self-isolation requirement; no restrictions for crew. Aircraft disinfection required.
  • UK – See section below for more details.
  • Rest of Europe – Most EU countries are allowing essential business travel (for instance, your principal is considering investing in a European business), so if you can state your case, there may be a way in.
  • Note that most of these require either quarantine or proof of a negative COVID-19 test to enter.
  • UK –
  • Quarantine – The UK has eliminated quarantine requirements for pax entering from 50+ countries. U.S. is not on the exemption list. IMPORTANT: The quarantine period only applies for the duration of stay in the UK with the max being 14 days. All arriving passengers will need to abide by the regulations (i.e., not leave their accommodation unless for exempted purposes which include medical assistance, to purchase food if no other options available, and to depart the UK.) For crew, positioning/deadhead crew can continue to turn around and leave the next day; however, they must quarantine in their hotel for the duration of their stay. Engineers/loadmasters are not recognized as crew, and they must quarantine themselves for the duration of their stay (up to 14 days). More details are online.
  • Our Universal Aviation FBO in London-Stansted can provide PCR testing inside the FBO for passengers heading to another destination, like Croatia. Passengers only need to quarantine for length of stay.
  • See published COVID-19 guidance on safer travel and working principles for airports and aviation operators.
