Travel Advisories

Most governments offer an official source* of travel information, and advice, to help you to make informed decisions, about travel safely, while you are cruising outside your home nation.
Check their pages, for your destination often, because safety, health, and security conditions may change.

*Travel Advice and Advisories by destination:
Australia ➥ https://www.smartraveller.gov.au/
Australia ➥ https://www.smartraveller.gov.au/destinations
Canada ➥ https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories
European Union ➥ https://ec.europa.eu/consularprotect...avel-advice_en
U.K. ➥ https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
U.S.A. [Dept of State]
https://travel.state.gov/content/tra...visories.html/
U.S.A. [CDC] ➥ https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...l-notices.html

Once on the page, if you select the country of interest, it has links to the official government sources.

It's a good idea to check the govt source links but for many countries, they are confusing and poorly laid out...but ultimately, if you show up at immigration, those are the rules you likely (but not certainly) will be held to.

Re: Travel Advisories

I've travelled "a bit" and found all of these to be largely useless.

Here's NZ on USA: https://www.safetravel.govt.nz/united-states-america

Scary sound bites like "In many states, it is legal for United States citizens to openly carry firearms in public." But no warning on avoiding urban areas including Chicago, Detroit, Portland, Baltimore. No warning about carjackings, or random attacks against whites and Asians in NYC.


NZ's advisory on Solomons is much better, just kinda generic about petty crime and unrest. But then the warning about seismic activity has me kinda wondering, duh, no kidding.

NZ's advisory on Cook Islands jumps right up and first alerts on COVID. Nothing about Raro having the highest per-capita motor bike death rate in the world.

I suppose these are good for some readers, the same who read Consumer Reports and their US AAA monthly magazine.

Yeah, I misread the original post. I was looking at it in terms of understanding the rules.

The "safety" stuff is often politically driven and pretty silly. Facebook (as bad as it is) is probably a better source for what's happening on the ground.

Re: Travel Advisories

The Australian site still says to 'reconsider your need to travel' to Ecuador.

Struth, I'm more inclined to reconsider my need to travel back to Australia .
Especially considering that Tulla is slap bang in the middle of 'covid central' in Australia.

And also - from the NZ site on the US
'Travellers from New Zealand to the United States should allow at least two hours when transiting from an international flight to a domestic flight due to increased security checks.'
I've entered the US three times in the last five months - you need two hours to find your departure gate - which once you have reached it will change from gate 130 to gate 42 .

Security is shambolic but takes minutes.

That's a good point. LAX has improved immensely, so it's not like 10 years ago when it took three hours to go through immigration and then find and recheck your luggage.

Now, this IS a boating forum, but before lambasting me (us) about air travel, keep in mind that potential buyers are transiting OZ and NZ to USA looking at boats.

What people should be warned about is LA traffic, which makes Sydney and Auckland traffic look like a nice Sunday drive in the convertible. And FL drivers, both the elderly and the uninsured, who may be a bit dangerous and a cause for hightened awareness.
