MAKE SURE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO TRAVEL
If you don't know if you are a confirmed case, or if you must stay in isolation, or whether you are denied international travel, you should check the website of the Immigration and Population Authority.
Confirmed COVID19 cases or individuals who are required to stay in isolation at the time of arrival at the airport will not be allowed to board the flight and will be subject to penalty according to law.
