Although many countries are now easing their entry
restrictions, most countries still require various types of travel
and test certificates and it is important to be well-prepared well
before arriving at the airport. To make it easier for travelers,
SAS has developed a digital platform, SAS Travel Ready Center.
Through SAS Travel Ready Center, travelers can prepare everything
they need online from home. On this site, customers can see what
restrictions apply at their destination, upload travel
certificates, and have them reviewed and verified by SAS. They can
then download their boarding pass electronically and can go
directly to the SAS self-service line at the airport.
