International Travel Restriction Dashboard

Identify COVID travel restrictions across the world

Where could you travel to right now?

The International Travel Restrictions Dashboard shows the entry limitations for foreign travellers for a selected country on the map, alongside any available travel destinations for that country.

One of the first measures taken against the spread of SARS-CoV2 was for governments to implement international travel restrictions. This led to restrictions imposed by various authorities – restrictions that are changing all the time. Country-specific travel restrictions from diverse sources are visualized in this dashboard.

The data science behind the International Travel Restriction Dashboard

Natural language processing was used to extract country-specific travel restrictions mentioned in numerous sources and visualized in this dashboard.
