Researching travel restrictions can get long and tiring, especially if you're looking to go to more than one country in the future when quarantines finally allow. To aid you in your planning, this travel app collates information on other countries' restrictions so you can organize your future trips accordingly.

The Skyscanner app's main purpose prior to the pandemic was to help wanderlust-stricken travelers compare flight and lodging prices to get the best deal. The virus rendered the tourism and travel industry immobilized due to social distancing protocols and strict border control, making flight comparisons irrelevant.

Now the app serves as a restriction guide for travelers, with requirements listed for countries.

Additional information about the destination country is also available, such as the number of COVID-19 cases. Not all countries make the same type of information available, so it's best to check each one you're planning on going to.

If you're outside of the Philippines seeking to travel to other countries, you can change your country of origin and select your country of destination.

You can also share your e-mail for any restriction updates on destination countries.

The Skyscanner app is available for iOS and Android.
