04 Mar ONE WAY THE WUHAN CORONAVIRUS CASE GOT OUR ATTENTION
PASSPORTS CAN BE INFECTION PROOF
There is no better feeling.
The relieved looks on the faces of your family members who understand that you made the right choice that day while everyone else is now stuck in a country where a pandemic is exploding.
A second passport turns out to be helpful in these unfortunate cases
The ability of the media to deliver panic and phobia to people translates into REAL complications (apart from health consequences) like travel bans, restrictions and airline operators suspending important routes.
It has also effected the markets:
- IATA found that the Coronavirus could cost the aviation industry $29bn in passenger revenues
- Major airlines have drastically reduced flights to China and other destinations
- Numerous flights have been cancelled because of a drop in demand
- Cruise ships are cancelled
- Major events are cancelled or postponed
On top of that, it appears the most extensive travel ban ever has been enacted.
Bans are on residents, visitors and citizens of specific countries. Plus, passengers arriving from some countries will be placed at home quarantine for 14 days.
[ IATA Travel Centre ] Some new policies were implemented with immediate effect:
- – Chinese and Iranians cannot enter Russia
- – UAE nationals cannot travel to Thailand and Iran
- – UAE has issued travel bans to Iran
- – Chinese cannot enter Grenada. This does not apply to citizens or residents of Grenada.
- – Iraq bans Iranians and Chinese
- – Jordan and Lebanon ban visitors who entered China, Iran, Italy or South Korea in the past 14 days
- – Korea bans all tourists
- – Kuwait bans nationals of Iran, Iraq, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand
- – St. Lucia bans passengers who have been in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Italy, South Korea or Singapore in the past 14 days…except St. Lucia citizens.
- – USA bans passengers who have been to China in the past 14 days, except US citizens or residents.
- – India invalidated visas issued before 5 Feb. to Chinese nationals
What can I do to avoid the travel bans?
What if you MUST travel because of business or a family emergency? You desire no more hassles relating to passports while travelling. The problem is that YOU CAN’T LEAVE, YOU CAN’T ENTER. How do you circumvent that? There is no way to escape that if you recently traveled to areas considered at risk over the last 2 weeks.
A solution to the Coronavirus travel bans:
This is not about disease prevention. We’ll get to the point: there is risk but the panic should be moderated.
As a businessman you are thinking about:
- ” How do I skip these mandatory home quarantines? “
- “The Economy must keep moving “
- ” I Can’t feel guilty for having recently visited China or Italy “
- ” What country will be next?”
- “It’s too late to apply for a visa, there is a mass rush”
Can’t wait more time. This could last longer. It can happen again.
There is a moral to this story: never depend on one passport or one residency.
Don’t let these unexpected events stop your business, your family, your future again. Now, get in touch as we need to show you which options can solve your problem.
