Get up and running with the sherpa° travel rules API in just a few minutes. In this guide, you will learn how to add visa and COVID-19 rules to your platform with just a single API request.

This guide uses sandbox development environment. You require separate API keys for sandbox and production.

2. Import Postman Collection

Postman is a tool for easy RESTful API exploration. You can use Postman to test API calls multiple times without writing any code. Get started by exploring the API with sandbox credentials before moving to development.

Don't forget to save the environment after making changes.

Make sure the correct environment is selected before making requests.

4. Make an API Request

Choose an API request from the collection. This example shows how to retrieve travel restrictions for an international, one-way trip from Egypt to Canada.

The collection includes folders for each sherpa° API endpoint with preconfigured examples you can use to test each endpoint and develop an understanding of various combinations of filters.
