CNN correspondent Will Ripley Who is currently based and lives with his husband in Hong Kong, has spent three and a half month in Tokyo on assignment. He was finally able to fly back from Tokyo to Hong Kong late this week. He’s been posting a documentary series of clips on his Instagram channel, which CNN complied on its website. Normally it takes about 5 hours. This took 23 hours and he had to go into immediate self quarantine at home for fourteen days.

Those international travel restrictions are hopefully to be lifted and would have to resume when the (northern) summer comes as some airports are expected to reopen international travel with coping of social distancing guidelines.

It seems like there is some talk of a few countries opening up travel to one another with precautionary measures, but unfortunately I don't think the US is in a position to negotiate any opening with other countries just yet. We'll hope the virus comes under control sooner rather than later.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Yes - even if countries with low/no virus open travel between each other the US is not going to be one of those involved as it is one of the worst effected places in the world. It will be a very long time before international travel returns to normal and it will likely never be exactly as it was - I suspect more stringent screening when crossing borders will become the norm afterwards.

I agree, travel will not be the same as before. I was watching a short documentary a few nights ago and the last time that a global event changed on how people travel was after the events of 9/11. We've had multiple body scanners, stringent checks with luggage both check-in and carry-on baggages. Several items can never be carried on to a flight, even passenger profiling. I am expecting that they'll require medical clearances, declarations of your health status, your vaccines, your recent sicknesses and multiple temperature screenings....

With the airline industry suffering massive losses, facing bankruptcy, restructuring or administration; the uncertainty of when this pandemic will end; the stigma of air travel. I'm thinking TAR won't be even be able to film in 2021.

I was talking to my family & friends and they all said the same thing. "We won't be travelling until 2022 or 2023."

Well the sanctions of reopening the economy and the resumption of air travel that will hopefully in the second half of 2020. Many of TV productions will resume since the COVID-19 pandemic, with some had a choice to restart production.

Everyone's probably going to have to register for CLEAR and upload medical documentation prior to the travel date in order to make sure everything goes smooth. :groan:

Not if the Republicans stay in office. They don't seem to understand basic disease communicability. :groan:

TPTB for TAR will be careful I am sure. What I am hearing is they are preparing for late fall IN CASE it is possible to go. If things are still difficult they will look at early 2021. And so forth until we can safely go out again.

Survivor apparently believes they can go out possibly in July...because they can film in a much more controlled environment than TAR.

We'll see. I personally am by no means sure that countries will have opened borders, that it will be safe to fly, that 14 days isolation is enough,  and that there will not be a resurgence of Covid-19 in Nov-Dec even in things improve by July.

LIVES and HEALTH are the first priority for us all. I'm sure CBS and WRP feel the same.

If it's any consolation, TAR has adapted very well to the post-9/11 world. It'd take some time to figure out how to make it work in the post-COVID world, but the business community/tourism industry will be pushing for some resumption of normality eventually; we'll just have to be patient until then! (I'm hopeful!)

This would most probably be another tedious requirement in securing a visa for certain countries.  :groan:

This is what amazes me with how TAR is produced. 2001 was a really dark year with the 9/11 and it really put a stigma on the safety of air travel, basically travel in general. TAR adapted to its changes and we're now at 32 seasons. Like all of us, we want this pandemic to end very soon. I agree that when everything normalizes the business/tourism industry will be clamoring to restart. I hope TAR is one of those catalysts that will make travel good again. It was through TAR where my dreams of travelling arose, I'm grateful for this show and this forum.

From Kelly Kahl at upfronts.

Quote
In terms of Survivor and The Amazing Race, we’ll get those into production as soon as we can safely get back into production. That’s going to be a little more complicated because we literally have to navigate some international waters.

If we get back into production [on The Amazing Race], you can trust that we have plotted out all of the safe and smart ways of doing it. Some countries are more affected than others and these producers are some of the best in the business and they will plot out a race that sticks to countries that are safe.

Kelly Kahl's statement regarding The Amazing Race 33 cast:

Quote
"Production on Survivor and The Amazing Race was interrupted. What precautions are you taking there and with those casts? Has anyone from either show dropped out?"

"I don't believe anyone has dropped out. We are going to take all precautions that take all steps to protect the health and safety of our contestants — or in scripted shows, or actors — but also certainly the crew. Everyone's health and safety is going to be taken into consideration."

Edit: Redundant post because I only looked at Garrett's post and not the one above his, which already linked the same article i was linking.
 
The cynic could note that he says "IF we get back into production on TAR", rather than WHEN, but it does seem like they are committed to completing it, if they can do it safely. Here's hoping it will get completed!

TAR 33 is firmly being planned to resume filming.  The WHEN is the tricky bit...Nov perhaps?
