The link provided below includes a high-level overview document detailing current government restrictions and regulations that countries have made to try to curb the spread of the virus within their populations.

Another emerging theme in the global immigration response to COVID-19 is that countries are making practical adjustments to some rules based on the impossibility of travel and suspension of agency or office operations. These adjustments include automatic temporary extensions of expiration dates.
