People are finally beginning to travel regularly again, which is lovely to see. However, there are many reports of queues and delays due to passengers not completing all the forms that are needed when flying.
Each country has a different set of rules and at times there are multiple requirements. Even when you are returning home, there is likely to be something you need to do.
What Forms Might I Need To Complete?
Perhaps you’re flying to Ireland. You might be an Irish person returning from a trip, or you might be someone deciding to visit. Everyone is required to complete a Passenger Locator Form online within 72 hours of your travel.
There are many reports of people arriving at check-in and not having completed the form(s). This usually results in everyone waiting in the queue that person completes their form. Not fun for anyone, that’s for sure. You don’t want to be that person.
You also need to check the requirements when in transit. For example, I am flying through London soon and I have to complete a form and also get a Covid test within three days of travel. I am not even leaving the airport, so that is another onerous requirement that I could do without, yet must be done.
It is up to you to ensure you have checked out all the requirements of your destination country when it comes to forms. What some forget is that there could be additional forms to complete for any transit airports, and also for returning to your home country.
Do everyone a favour and research before you leave for the airport. Complete everything you need to and have it all ready at the airport. That way the queues will flow faster and everyone will be happy.
What do you think of all the forms people have to complete right now? Bureaucracy gone made or fair? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
