  • A  lock down in the traveler’s country of residence,
  • The inability to travel to French Polynesia due to the closure of the borders in transit stops,
  • A lock down in French Polynesia,
  • The inability to travel to French Polynesia for a traveler whose Covid-19 test was found to be positive prior to  departure,
