If I’m transferring through different countries at the airport, or by car or train, do I need to record it in my travel journal?
If you don’t leave the airport during your stop, then you don’t need to record that country in your travel journal.
If you leave the airport, even if it’s only for a couple of hours, you should record the date and destination in the travel journal.
If you’re traveling by car or train, you’ll need to record dates and destinations of the countries you passed through.
