Candidates arrived in several Adelante operated cities in Spain and Mexico. Even with the uncertainty of traveling and travel restriction most countries, students and interns are still allowed in for their programs. So did our candidates encounter any troubles on their journey? What precautions were in place? Hear what our candidates had to say about their travel experience during COVID-19.
How Was Your Travel Journey Abroad and Airport Experience?
–Belinda A., Oaxaca, Mexico
“Arriving in Barcelona was nice and easy! No one asked me for any papers or asked me any questions aside from what my final destination was and how long I’d be staying in Barcelona. Some parts of the Barcelona airport were blocked off and rerouted for arriving passengers. We had to fill out a paper on the plane to provide contact information in case someone on our plane tested positive for COVID after we landed. So all I did was fill out the contact information and my address and the flight attendants collected everyone’s paperwork. There were several checkpoints but I did not have any trouble getting through” -Brandie S., Barcelona, Spain
How Does It Feel To Be Abroad and Traveling Again?
Adelante is excited to hear that all our candidates had smooth flights and travel experience during COVID, even with extra modifications.
