National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
We currently advise that all New Zealanders do not travel overseas at this time due to the outbreak of COVID-19, associated health risks and widespread travel restrictions. The global situation remains complex and rapidly changing. International travel can be complicated with fewer international flights available and disruptions to transit routes and hubs. Any destination could experience a sudden increase in cases of COVID-19 and a heightened risk to travellers of contracting the virus. Strict health measures and movement restrictions could be imposed suddenly. Should you decide to travel despite our advice, be prepared to remain overseas longer than you intended. You should also be aware that your travel insurance may not cover travel disruption or medical expenses. Managed Isolation and Quarantine in New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand must undertake 14 days of government-provided managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ). Detailed information about MIQ requirements in New Zealand can be found at www.miq.govt.nz. Pre-departure testing requirements for travellers to New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand (excluding those from Antarctica, Australia and most Pacific Islands) must show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result before departure. Detailed information about pre-departure testing requirements can be found on the Unite Against Covid-19 website here. We recognise that some New Zealanders do continue to live and travel overseas. We continue to provide destination-specific advice about other safety and security risks below.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Ukraine pga. COVID-19. Erhvervsrejser anses som nødvendige rejser og kan derfor gennemføres. Færdigvaccinerede og deres medrejsende børn under 18 år samt tidligere smittede med fast bopæl i Danmark er undtaget anbefalingen om, at alle ikke-nødvendige rejser frarådes til orange lande og regioner. De kan derfor rejse. Vær dog fortsat opmærksom på lokale indrejserestriktioner. Information om lokale restriktioner, karantæne- og testkrav kan findes hos den danske ambassade i Kiev, da der kan være krav om fx COVID-19 test, vaccinedokumentation, udfyldning af formularer el.lign. Du kan læse mere om, hvordan du skal forholde dig ift. test og isolation, når du kommer hjem fra en udenlandsrejse på coronasmitte.dk. Du kan få svar på ofte stillede spørgsmål her. Rejseklar og Danskerlisten Du bør downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten, så modtager du information direkte fra os, hvis der sker større ændringer i indrejserestriktionerne, eller hvis rejsevejledningen skifter farve. Andre sikkerhedsrisici Hvis du rejser til Ukraine, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed pga. risikoen for terror. Vi fraråder alle rejser til regionerne Donetsk og Luhansk i det østlige Ukraine. Der har været væbnet konflikt siden foråret 2014. Vi fraråder også alle rejser til Krim-halvøen, som er under russisk kontrol i strid med international ret. I november 2018 fandt et sammenstød sted mellem den russiske kystvagt og den ukrainske flåde i Sortehavet ud for Krim. Bemærk at det ifølge ukrainsk lovgivning er ulovligt at rejse til Krim uden tilladelse fra de ukrainske myndigheder. Du risikerer at blive straffet med bøde, fængsling, udvisning eller indrejseforbud til Ukraine. Hvis du rejser til Donetsk, Luhansk eller Krim-halvøen, har ambassaden meget begrænsede muligheder for at hjælpe dig, hvis du kommer i en nødsituation.

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
