If you thought passengers traveling with incorrect documentation were a minor inconvenience, think again. The sixty thousand travelers turned back at destination or transfer points by immigration authorities from year to year cause overwhelming and frustrating situations. They also cost the world’s airlines a substantial amount of money in fines and associated costs.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not helped the situation either. Whether it’s rules applied at short notice, vaccination documents or evidence presented in the wrong format or language, passengers and airlines are at pains to keep up with varying requirements at all times and in all circumstances. Hence, it is all the more essential to be well prepared and make sure you have the right travel documents, especially when going abroad.
