HOME QUARANTINE FOR THOSE OVER 70

The previous advice that applications for Home Quarantine for travellers of 70 years of age, purely on entitlement by age, had to be submitted in advance of travel, has now been rescinded.

While applications have to be submitted through the Stay Safe App 3 working days before the travel date, it is no longer necessary to additionally e-mail the Health Ministry, for specific permission.

The Stay Safe (Guvende Kal) App which can be accessed through

https://www.kktckarantina.com/en has also now been updated to include Companion (Wife, Partner, etc) of a traveller aged 70 years, being able to complete Home Quarantine as well.

Proof of a negative COVID-19 Test done during the previous three days will still be required prior to boarding your flight.
