International Travel

Introducing Sherpa – A simple way to understand the complex international travel requirements.

We’re pleased to provide a new C-19 feature Sherpa – courtesy of our Preferred Partner Airline British Airways. Sherpa will allow you (or your travellers) to quickly and easily check entry requirements by country. Sherpa returns requirements for both direct and indirect trips, making it a valuable tool for all, wherever you may be transiting, as well as those whose journey is point-to-point. Sherpa will return COVID-19 test requirements, quarantine protocols and entry restrictions for anywhere in the world. In addition it also helps travellers to understand and apply for certain eVisas.
