The current outbreak of COVID-19 has affected global mobility in the form of various travel disruptions and restrictions. To better understand how COVID-19 affects global mobility, DTM has developed a COVID-19 database mapping the different restrictions to provide a global overview. For this, DTM uses the IATA site as the primary source on restrictions with the information reported per country and territory, and to the country of application.
Data collected includes:
1. Date of restriction
2. Country of Restriction
3. Countries on which restrictions were imposed
4. Type of restriction- total restriction, or conditional restriction – such as medical/ and or visa restriction
This DTM-Covid19 Travel Restrictions Output presents an analysis based on country imposing, country being imposed upon, and the aggregation of the restriction type. The aim of the data analysis is to provide an overview of the COVID-19 outbreak on global mobility and to help identify and develop response.
IOM’s Global Data Institute (GDI) and Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of International Migration (ISIM) produced the first Periodic Global Report on the State of Solutions to internal displacement (PROGRESS).
