Travel Realities: June 2022 Edition

With the world opening doors to international travel, it is evident that business travel will not be the same as in pre-pandemic times. Countries are now resuming mask mandates in public places. For example, wearing face masks in closed spaces, workplaces, and public transport is mandatory in India. 

Although travel guidelines are eased to a certain extent, the uncertainty still lingers around the travel curbs. Therefore, travelers need to exercise caution while traveling. 

Here are some updates from different countries around the world.
