Covid-19 Updates: International Project Planning Tool

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected most, if not all, countries around the world. But, restrictions on travel and gatherings vary widely from country to country and make it very difficult to plan your international projects.

The following tool will allow you to obtain up-to-date country restrictions for travel, workplace, and gatherings, from the Coronavirus Government Response Tracker (OxCGRT), published and managed by researchers at the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford.

We can also provide you with an on-the-ground view, based on our extensive network of local producers and crews, who can give you a more detailed picture of the options to make your project happen.

Stay-at-home requirements  Cancellation of public events Restrictions on public gatherings Workplace closures International travel restrictions Restrictions on internal movement

*For those locations where a local crew is not available due to COVID-19 mandatory isolation, one of our producers can help you produce the entire shoot remotely using the interview subject’s own phone, or camera gear. Our producer will make sure the video specs are correct, the lighting is the most appropriate, and the video looks as professional as possible!

We will make sure the video is delivered using the fastest technology available for the location.
