As-salaamu alaikum R.B.

Dear alim,

My question is,  are we allowed to travel during this time of COVID?

Thank you.


Salaamun alaykum
Thank you for your email

In the link above, there are a few questions about covid answered by Ayatulah Sistani’s office.

3. Those who arrive in the country after having been in a country in which the virus had spread widely, or if he had been around those who were infected, is it obligatory for him to quarantine himself in his home or must that person get tested to know whether he was infected or not?

3. Yes, it is mandatory for him to do so, taking into account the directions of the respective authorities.

So travelling in itself is allowed but all the precautionary measures have to be taken.

Kind regards,
