For governments, the Digital Travel Declaration gives them the power to safely allow citizens to travel across borders. SITA Digital Travel Declaration simplifies the process of providing required information to the government of the destination country prior to travel by allowing travelers to do so in just a few simple steps. Industry bodies like IATA, ICAO, and WHO encourage travelers to use pre-travel declarations to reduce risk and notify authorities appropriately before traveling there. Governments can even provide a travel authorization depending on the evaluation of the information provided.
Airlines, airports and passengers all face inefficiencies in the management of health paperwork. Traveler numbers will only make this tougher. Governments have a responsibility to protect their populations’ health by reducing the health risks they face.
While giving governments better control over who enters and leaves the nation, the SITA Digital Travel Declaration lets travelers submit required papers with them ahead of time for approval.
Congestion will be reduced, passenger stress will be reduced, and governments will be able to open their borders more freely now that health documents can be verified digitally.
SITA Digital Travel Declaration is now available in three levels of service: Entry, Enhanced, and Elite. Enhanced and Elite configurations have better levels of support than standard, although they all use the same delivery model. For the time being, the market’s best deal is the Elite configuration, which includes all of the available features and perks.
