Immigration and health authorities of some European countries ask passengers to provide a health and travel history record. The health declaration card is an addition to the Passenger Locator Form to provide more information.

Most countries have their own online report, mainly known as the Passenger Locator Form. It is recommended for use when public health authorities suspect any potential transmission on board and need to perform a contact tracing.

For this reason, following the COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential to fill out this form.
