In our July travel safety forecast we’re going to keep things brief. Covid-19 continues to ravage much of the world. The weather may be heating up for summer and people are tired of lockdown. Nonetheless, travel should still be for essential purposes only.

The virus is likely to make another resurgence in several parts of the world.

It could be months before it is finally brought under control – if ever. Even then, this is not going to be the last major new disease we see. More are almost certain to emerge in the coming years.

The month of July normally sees high temperatures in the northern hemisphere. There is often a boom in travel in places such as Europe. Nonetheless, that clearly won’t be happening now.

The lifting of some travel restrictions will encourage sporadic booms in travel. However, restrictive measures will remain in place. Further subsequent outbreaks are also to be expected – particularly around areas where social distancing is eased.

Inclement weather

Elsewhere in the world, the monsoon is normally in full swing in south Asia. You should also bear in mind that hurricane season has begun in the Caribbean region.

The following countries and territories are also worthy of mention in our July travel safety forecast. Notable weather changes normally occur at this time of year:

North Korea/DPRK: typhoons can occasionally occur from now until October.
Guam: the rainy season normally begins this month and lasts until December.
Micronesia: typhoons can occur all year but they become more likely between now and November.
Northern Mariana Islands: the rainy season normally begins this month and lasts until October.
Pakistan: the rainy/monsoon season normally begins this month and lasts until August.
