Read on to learn more about how to keep track of international travel restrictions for private jet travelers.
International Travel Restrictions: What to Know
How Magellan Jets Monitors International Travel Rules
In the wake of COVID-19, most countries also have health forms, testing requirements and other restrictions in place. The Magellan Jets team actively monitors destinations and hotspots, keeping track of regulations so you and your guests know ahead of time on what’s needed in order to visit a getaway.
“Especially with COVID-19, there are a lot of additional restrictions that are in place,” says Director of Flight Support Ryan Foss. “You can still travel to these locations, but there are additional things other than arriving just with your passport. That’s something that we have built a database for, we’re experts in, we’ll do that research on your behalf and we will provide you with exactly what’s needed.”
One of the essential tracking tools that our team uses to review international travel restrictions in real time is COVID Controls. This interactive map offers up-to-date information on every country’s health requirements. You can use the tool to see whether travelers from certain countries are allowed entry to specific countries, what kind of testing is needed, length of quarantine time (if necessary), and more.
Whether you’re headed to another continent, or even just traveling between states and cities in the U.S., the Magellan Jets will always keep you informed on the latest requirements, as we monitor flights and destinations 24/7, 365 days a year, for any possible changes.
Navigating Customs & Other Requirements
Our team works works with Magellan Jets Preferred Network operators to help you find the best aircraft for flying abroad, as well as even file customs, utilizing the passport information your provide to us to make that arrival as smooth as possible. For example, if you’re headed to an island destination like the Bahamas, we have relationships with customs agents there and can make your experience simple and seamless.
Additionally, as experts in international travel restrictions, the Magellan Jets team will also let you know if your pets must meet certain requirements as well in order to enter specific countries and destinations. Whether your furry friend needs a rabies vaccine, or your human guests require negative COVID-19 tests, traveling with Magellan Jets means never having to worry about any last-minute issues, as our team will make sure they are taken care of well in advance of your flight.
Re-entering the united states
In addition, each returning passenger will be asked to complete our Magellan Health Declaration Form, part of our 5 x 5 PureSky Safety Standard. This can be completed easily through our app, which you can download here.
All travelers returning from an international location are required to follow CDC recommendations to get a COVID test 3-5 days after travel, and to stay home or otherwise self-quarantine for seven days after travel. Reviewing the CDC’s rules about masks on private jet flights will also help you get the best out of your Magellan Jets experience.
