With the health crisis looming over countries, the changes made by policymakers are increasing. As a result, travel is not as easy as it used to be, especially since forms are required by most states. Find out more about the passenger location form required by some countries in the following article.
What is a passenger location form?
To access certain territories, it is now useful to make applications. A Passenger Locator form or Passenger Name Record, is a means used by health authorities to easily identify travellers who have come into contact with an infectious disease during their journey. This may be travel by air, sea, rail or even bus.
This preventive measure against the spread of infectious diseases is mainly implemented by the European Union states (Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, Slovenia, Malta, Slovakia, Portugal, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, etc.). The aim is to ensure the protection of travellers and their contacts.
In addition, to find out whether it is useful to have a passenger location form before travelling to a country, it is important to check the French diplomatic portal. But above all, you should find out before buying your ticket.
How to obtain a passenger location form?
To obtain a passenger location form, travellers are asked to provide several pieces of information. This includes information about their journey and means of transport, personal information, contact details, temporary address, accommodation, permanent and recent address. They also need to provide emergency contact details and information about their travelling companions.
In addition, this document can be made up online in a number of ways. Indeed, websites or the EU's Digital Tracking Form application can help with the application of the passenger location form. It is also possible to obtain the form directly online from the website of the country requiring it.
