Travel Bubbles and Air Bridges Explained

With countries returning to normalcy and tourism is being encouraged worldwide, you might be hearing the world Travel Bubble. So what is travel bubble and what are Air Bridges? #Macrotraveller explains you in this content.

A “travel bubble” refers to two or more countries that have agreed to open their borders to each other. This includes entry over land, sea, and air. The first bubbles to emerge are between countries that have successfully dealt with the pandemic domestically and share a border, or neighbour each other. However, their borders will remain closed to visitors from countries outside their bubble. The agreement is that tourists are free to travel between countries in their bubble without restriction.

So, Travel Bubble will be the agreement between two countries where the citizens can travel either via Air, Sea or Land. However, you might hear about terms such as Travel Corridor or Air Bridges. These terms come into picture when there are 2 or more countries that share the bubble. While the travel bubble is an agreement between 2 countries, a travel corridor will be an agreement between 2 or more countries where the network gets expanded between these nations which as dealt the pandemic domestically.

A Travel corridor is a multiple country journey via Air, Sea and Land, the idea of Travel Bubble, Travel Corridor and Air Bridges started to emerge when there was a downward trend of Coronavirus cases in a country where they searched for any nearby countries which are also experiencing a low number of cases from past many days. However, the situation is still not under control as the pandemic is still a major cause of hindrance in its plan.

For countries to form the travel bubble, 2 or more countries would agree to lift the travel ban with each other. However, if a tourist shows any symptoms of Coronavirus, then he/she would not be allowed to enter. The same applies to a tourist who has travelled to the country outside the bubble.  But, if the travel bubble is formed between the countries which one has travelled, the tourist can pretty much start travelling once he steps the foot on the land and he/she should not start to self-isolate where he landed

The countries that have formed Travel Bubbles right now include Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia were first EU nations to form the travel Bubble, other countries like China and Korea, China and Singapore etc. There were reports that there will be Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble shared between New Zealand, Australia, Tasmania and other South Pacific Islands when New Zealand reported COVID free country but both Australia and New Zealand are deciding to wait until they form the bubble.

The Trans-Tasman Bubble if successful will be expanded to other countries such as Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong.

Recently, the UK announced a list of places from where the tourists can explore the country without quarantine. The list includes 59 places and 14 British overseas territories where people will not have to quarantine on arrival in England.
