Over the course of 2023-24 Riskline will transition reports from our current model based around "Security and Covid-19" to one of "Security, Health and Travel." The purpose of this Three Pillars project is to offer our clients improved travel and health information while maintaining high quality security reports.
We have updated our location database to keep in line with ISO standards.
We have added "Extreme cold" as a subcategory for our Alerts.
We will be updating the names of two destinations in our database to better align with ISO naming:
In light of the recent decision by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to change the name of "monkeypox" to "mpox", we are starting the process to change our reporting of the disease from “monkeypox” to “mpox”. We will eventually phase out the former term and replace it with "mpox".
The last major update to our Alert reporting system came in late 2015 and allowed Riskline analysts to double their daily volume of reports.
As Covid-19 continues to evolve, we recognise that some of the information that we have provided since the start of the pandemic in early 2020 is no longer relevant or important to today's traveller or travel manager.
We have suspended our COVID-19 regional report for the Australian state of Victoria following its removal of testing requirements.
In the event of local authorities reintroducing new travel restrictions, Riskline will restart the relevant reports for the affected region(s).
Our Pre-Travel Advisories API is now available in: German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish as well as French and English.
We have made the following additions to the COVID-19 microsite:
