Requirements API v2.7.1 and Trip Element

Personalization for Vaccinated travellers

12261226

Countries are preparing to welcome tourists this summer, and vaccination is required.

Iceland, leading the way, opened to vaccinated travellers from the US and EU on April 6. The EU announced Apr 26, 2021 that vaccinated travellers from the US will be welcomed this summer.

To continue providing personalized content, we are introducing new tags to Restrictions and Procedures: not_vaccinated, fully_vaccinated.

Effect on Procedures and Restrictions

๐Ÿšง

The Sherpa API will be returning separate travel restrictions for fully vaccinated and non-vaccinated travellers.

Sherpa's API is organized around resources, and Government policies for vaccinated vs non-vaccinated travellers are fundamentally different, as they apply to travellers from select origins.

Taking Iceland as example:
Entry is restricted for travellers from most countries.
Fully vaccinated travellers from USA and EU can enter.

As a result, the sherpa API will return two separate entry restrictions for Iceland (see tabs in example response).
