One of the big challenges with traveling today is that the rules and laws are constantly changing. It’s difficult to get up-to-date information about basic questions like: Can I travel there? Do I need a visa? Do I need to provide a negative COVID-19 test? Do I have to quarantine for 14 days?

Well, thanks to the Association of Southern African Travel Agents who partnered with Sitata, a Canadian travel risk management company, there’s assistance available. They have launched an interactive travel map providing an all-encompassing understanding of the global travel situation. Scroll down to try it out.
