 It doesn't say on
 [https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/wp_redirect/ | this
 page] where in template file should wp_redirect() function be called. If
 placed in wrong place, there could be created confusion and impression
 that function doesn't work.

 So, it should be placed '''before''' get_header();

 In case page is redirected only under certain condition, it would be
 something like:
  * Redirect only if this condition is met
 if ( certain_condition ) {
         wp_redirect( $location );
  * Otherwise render the page
