Editor’s note: This is a continually updated story.

Coronavirus-related restrictions are falling right and left, and more and more countries are throwing open their doors again to visitors thanks to decreasing COVID-19 case numbers and increasing vaccination rates.

In fact, many countries no longer require a COVID-19 test for entry, regardless of vaccination status, while some still require unvaccinated travelers to submit a pre-arrival test or test upon arrival. However, many countries on the list treat all travelers the same and have eliminated entry requirements as a result.

North America

Canada

For travelers hoping to head up north, you’re in luck, as Canada finally announced they will be dropping their pre-arrival testing requirement for vaccinated travelers arriving in Canada via land or air, starting April 1.

As has been the case since February, travelers may be randomly selected for COVID-19 testing upon arrival, regardless of vaccination status.

Arrival testing requirements are not changing for unvaccinated travelers, who are still eligible to visit Canada by showing results of a negative antigen test taken within one day of arrival, a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure or proof of a positive PCR test taken within 10-180 days of entry.

For all travelers, you must complete an online form via ArriveCan ahead of arrival.

Mexico

Although Mexico briefly added COVID-19 restrictions in early 2022, the entire country is now designated as “green,” indicating a low risk of contracting COVID-19 based on government data.

As a result, minimal COVID-19 restrictions are only enforced if done so by specific states. The only major popular tourist destination currently enforcing a pandemic restriction is Puerto Vallarta, where masks remain mandatory. Elsewhere throughout the country, travelers shouldn’t expect much in the way of enforcement.

Puerto Rico

On March 10, the requirement to show either proof of vaccination or a negative test was dropped for domestic travelers to Puerto Rico, regardless of vaccination status, per updated travel guidelines issued by Discover Puerto Rico.

Just note that international travelers are still expected to adhere to the aforementioned U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention testing rule, as well as submit proof of vaccination (with a vaccine approved by the Food and Drug Administration or World Health Organization) to your airline.

Capacity limits and vaccine requirements for both private and public establishments no longer apply, though individual businesses may choose to implement their own guidelines related to health and safety.

Central America

Belize

On March 1, Belize dropped testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers to enter Belize, in addition to removing all curfew mandates and outdoor mask mandates, per updated guidance issued by the Belize Tourism Board.

Unvaccinated travelers age 5 and older (or those without vaccine proof) must continue to show results of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival or a negative antigen test taken within 48 hours.

Regardless of vaccination status, all international visitors must continue to purchase specific travel health insurance to visit the country as of April 7, per the tourism board.

In addition to purchasing the insurance, travelers must complete an online customs form provided on all flights to Belize and book their stay at a hotel or accommodation that has been approved by the tourism organization.

“Keeping abreast of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic remains our priority. Eliminating criteria that were no longer relevant, such as a COVID-19 test for fully vaccinated visitors, will stimulate additional travel to Belize,” Belize Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations Anthony Mahler told TPG via email. “We are cognizant that reducing costs for travelers is pertinent, as this is an important element in their consideration process when selecting a destination.”

Costa Rica

As of this month, travelers to Costa Rica have zero predeparture steps to consider thanks to the elimination of the online health pass and travel insurance policy, both formerly required for foreign visitors.

Even so, Visit Costa Rica still recommends travelers age 18 and older carry a travel insurance policy covering potential COVID-19-related expenses.

Currently, many public spaces — including sports venues, cultural and academic institutions and nightclubs — are operating at full capacity without vaccine requirements.

Americans do not need a visa to enter Costa Rica. However, they must possess a valid passport and a return ticket to exit Costa Rica within 90 days, per the Embassy of Costa Rica in Washington, D.C.

El Salvador

As of Nov. 17, 2021, the El Salvadoran government dropped all testing and vaccination requirements for U.S. citizens to enter, per the U.S. Embassy in El Salvador.

Unlike most countries on this list, El Salvador has been open for quite some time, having resumed international commercial flights on Sept. 19, 2020, without quarantine requirements for incoming passengers. Local businesses remain open as they did pre-pandemic and no curfew is currently being implemented.

The only pandemic-related precautions travelers can expect to see are temperature checks upon arrival at airports, such as Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport (SAL) in San Salvador.

Europe

Cyprus

Starting April 18, fully vaccinated and boosted travelers can visit the island of Cyprus without any predeparture or on-arrival steps, including COVID-19 testing, according to a press release issued by the Republic of Cyprus Ministry of the Interior earlier this week.

Cyprus’ Interior Ministry considers travelers fully vaccinated if boosted and if nine months have elapsed since receipt of a final COVID-19 vaccine dose. Unvaccinated travelers may enter the country by showing a negative COVID-19 test, either a PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure or a rapid test conducted within 24 hours.

Entry protocols do not apply to passengers under age 12. Current protocols determined by country color codes remain in place until April 18, as outlined by the Cyprus government here.

France

France has made headlines throughout the pandemic for its inconsistent implementation of COVID-19 entry protocols for travelers, but it seems to have reached a conclusion regarding the steps tourists need to take to visit.

As of March 14, only unvaccinated or partially vaccinated Americans are expected to present results of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure for France, or a rapid test conducted within 48 hours.

Conversely, fully vaccinated travelers no longer have to take any entry steps beyond submitting proof of full vaccination, including booster, to airlines and customs officials. France considers you “fully vaccinated” if you are vaccinated and boosted with vaccines by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson.

Otherwise, things on the ground in France are seemingly back to normal, as masks are no longer compulsory indoors at public places, except for on public transit and in medical facilities, per the U.S. Embassy in France.

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Ireland scrapped almost all of its remaining restrictions related to COVID-19, in addition to the predeparture test requirement dropped earlier in 2022 for vaccinated tourists. However, unvaccinated Americans were still asked to submit a negative test to enter.

I’ve been cruising for more than 25 years, on just about every line that’s out there, and I can tell you it’s a wonderful way to travel.

Since March, all travelers may enter Ireland, regardless of vaccination status, no testing at any time is required, according to U.S. Mission Ireland.

In theory, this means your trip to Ireland should resemble what travel was like before the pandemic.

The Netherlands

Although the Netherlands dropped all entry protocols for travelers within the European Union and other countries deemed by the Dutch government as “safe,” travelers from all other countries, including the U.S., remain subject to vaccination requirements as of early April.

At the moment, only vaccinated Americans are eligible to enter the country, according to guidance issued by Dutch officials, which notes that these travelers can visit without submitting a negative COVID-19 test.

In order to be considered fully vaccinated, travelers must show proof of a booster shot if more than 270 days have elapsed since the final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Full vaccination requirements are outlined here.

Otherwise, the only exception to the vaccination requirement is applicable to travelers who can show proof of recovery from COVID-19 in the six months prior to entry in order to visit.

Additionally, all incoming travelers must complete an online health declaration form.

Norway

Norway became the first country in the EU to lift COVID-19 restrictions for both locals and visitors to the mainland as of Feb. 12, dropping all previous testing, quarantine and registration mechanisms travelers were previously subjected to upon arrival.

Do note that pre-arrival and upon-arrival testing requirements remain in Svalbard, the Norwegian archipelago situated between mainland Norway and the North Pole.

Otherwise, expect Norway to look like it did before the coronavirus reared its ugly head — sans social distancing, masks or anyone asking for your vaccine proof.

Slovenia

Americans are no longer subject to any testing requirements to enter Slovenia as of March 8. However, U.S.-based travelers over the age of 12 visiting the country for nonessential purposes, such as tourism, must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 to enter, as well as to attend indoor cultural events, per the U.S. Embassy in Slovenia.

Specific vaccines are permitted for entry, including Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, and travelers are considered fully vaccinated seven days after the second dose of Pfizer and 14 days after the final dose of both the Moderna and J&J vaccines.

Additionally, N95 or surgical masks remain required in indoor public spaces and outdoors where social distancing isn’t possible.

Spain

Despite announcing the removal of the current travel ban in place barring unvaccinated travelers from visiting Spain on April 6, Spanish officials rolled back plans to change current entry protocols for this group.

As of April 7, Americans are able to enter Spain by showing proof of full vaccination or recent recovery from COVID-19. Spain considers travelers fully vaccinated if they are boosted within 270 days of receiving their final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Unvaccinated travelers ages 12-18 may still enter by taking a predeparture PCR test within 72 hours of departing for Spain. Testing and vaccination rules do not apply to travelers under age 12.

All passengers (regardless of age) arriving in Spain by air or sea, including transit passengers, must complete an online Health Control Form before leaving for Spain.

Sweden

After previously reopening to travelers coming from within the EU, Sweden has finally welcomed back non-EU travelers.

“As of April 1, there are no COVID-19-specific entry restrictions,” says the U.S. Embassy in Sweden. “Regular rules for entering Sweden will be applied.”

This is long-awaited good news for travelers, meaning no pandemic-related entry requirements, such as testing or vaccination proof, are necessary to enter Sweden.

Continuing the same entry protocols as pre-pandemic, Americans can freely visit Sweden without obtaining a visa, as noted by the Swedish police.

United Kingdom

On March 18, the U.K. dropped its final remaining COVID-19 travel measures, including the passenger locator form and multiple testing requirements for unvaccinated passengers.

This means that no one traveling to the U.K. for vacation needs to take any predeparture or upon-arrival steps, as previously required.

Although this is good news, it comes as COVID-19 case numbers rose once again in March across the U.K. due to the omicron BA.2 subvariant.

Caribbean

Aruba

As of March 19, Aruba has scrapped all of its remaining COVID-19 restrictions, including the requirement for incoming unvaccinated travelers to submit results of a negative COVID-19 test, aligning with its decision in February to ditch the requirement for vaccinated visitors.

No travelers need to take a test to visit Aruba, nor do they need to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, as previously required.

To enter, incoming passengers age 15 and older must continue to purchase Aruba Visitors Insurance covering COVID-19-related medical expenses, for a flat-rate fee of $15 per person per stay. This insurance must be purchased in advance of travel as part of the online application process, which remains in effect for travelers.

More information on updated travel requirements to Aruba is available via Visit Aruba.

Bonaire

The Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire announced relaxed entry requirements for fully vaccinated visitors on March 20, according to guidance issued by the Public Entity Bonaire.

Currently, fully vaccinated visitors may enter Bonaire without submitting a predeparture test. The government considers travelers fully vaccinated if their final vaccine dose (either second dose or booster) was administered within the preceding nine months of travel.

Testing requirements remain for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers, who can still visit Bonaire by presenting results of a negative antigen test taken within 24 hours of departure or a PCR test taken within 48 hours. These testing rules do not apply to travelers age 12 and under.

All travelers, regardless of vaccination status, must fill out an online health declaration form ahead of travel.

Curacao

Travelers to Curacao are no longer expected to submit a pre-arrival COVID-19 test as of March 10, as the Caribbean nation has eliminated its former risk classification system that once determined steps travelers must take to visit.

However, there are a few steps travelers must continue to take in order to visit, including completing an online digital immigration card before departure, in addition to completing a passenger locator form within 48 hours of departure. Per the Curacao Tourist Board, visitors must either print or have a digital copy of the locator card available for review on the ground in Curacao.

Arriving passengers should be aware of health checks at Curacao International Airport (CUR) and note that you must pay to quarantine in your own accommodations should you test positive for COVID-19 while there. The tourist board continues to ask visitors to the island to social distance in public.

Grenada

Effective April 4, travel to Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique just got easier, says the Grenada Tourism Authority, which now allows travelers to the islands to enter without any entry protocols that were put in place during the pandemic.

Consequently, tourists can visit the islands without having to worry about any predeparture or upon-arrival steps since no COVID-19 testing, vaccination or quarantine requirements are in place. Additionally, travelers don’t have to worry about completing an online health form ahead of travel, making this Caribbean set of islands a very attractive destination for travelers.

St. Lucia

As of April2, vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers alike are welcome to enter St. Lucia via the country’s “Seamless Saint Lucia” protocols, which do not require a pre-travel test or quarantine for fully vaccinated visitors.

“Fully vaccinated travelers must provide a valid vaccination record as requested on check in, for boarding and on entry to Saint Lucia,” according to the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority. “Fully vaccinated means two weeks has passed since the second dose of a two-dose vaccine, or since a single-dose vaccine. Vaccine proof must be presented on entry to Saint Lucia.”

Otherwise, unvaccinated travelers age 5 and older may visit St. Lucia by presenting results of a negative PCR test taken within five days prior to arrival. This test must be administered by or supervised by a health care professional as only proctored tests are allowed for use for entry. Consult this guide for more specific testing requirements.

All travelers must complete a health screening questionnaire before disembarkation in St. Lucia.

US Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands has said vaccinated travelers no longer need to submit a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival to enter the U.S. territory located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, east of Puerto Rico.

Travelers are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving the final dose of any WHO- or FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine, including Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca.

As of March 7, unvaccinated travelers from the U.S. to St. Croix, St. Thomas, St. John and Water Island must still continue to provide results of a negative test taken within five days of travel. This test can be either an antigen or PCR test.

Outside of that requirement, all travelers must answer questions via an online travel screening portal ahead of travel, specifically domestic travelers age 5 and above and international visitors age 2 and above.

Masks remain compulsory indoors, including on public transit.

Africa

Mauritius

Located in the eastern Indian Ocean, the island of Mauritius was the first African nation to make this list. Mauritius relaxed entry requirements for fully vaccinated tourists on March 12, but still requires them to test upon arrival.

Although fully vaccinated foreign tourists no longer need to submit results of a negative COVID-19 test before departure to Mauritius, they, as is currently the case with all travelers, must take a test on the day they arrive in Mauritius, which is technically considered day zero.

After the day zero test, fully vaccinated travelers are allowed to freely explore the island as they please, but unvaccinated travelers must quarantine for seven days in an accommodation of their choice before being able to enjoy the island.

Travelers age 17 and under accompanied by a parent or guardian do not need to show proof of vaccination to enter, per updated guidance via the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority.

Regardless of age or vaccination status, all visitors must provide proof of COVID-19-related health insurance, to be uploaded as part of the completion of the online All-in-One form.

Seychelles

Joining Mauritius, Seychelles no longer tasks fully vaccinated visitors with presenting a negative PCR test upon arrival as of March 15, per an announcement by the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tourism.

Seychelles considers visitors age 18 and older fully vaccinated upon receipt of two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine along with a booster within six months of completion of the primary series. For travelers ages 12-19, a booster shot is not required to be treated as fully vaccinated.

If you fail to meet either of those conditions and are therefore unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, you must present results of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours or a rapid antigen test taken within 24 hours of departure to Seychelles.

Please note that people who have tested positive within two to 12 weeks prior to travel are also exempt from pre-arrival testing as long as they possess proof of recovery.

Regardless of vaccination status, all travelers must apply online for the mandatory travel authorization up to 72 hours prior to the start of travel.

Middle East

Bahrain

As of Feb. 20, all passengers arriving in Bahrain do not need to take a PCR test upon arrival.

Although travelers are allowed entry without submitting any pre-travel or upon-arrival tests regardless of vaccination status, Americans must possess a visa to enter, which is available upon arrival, per guidance issued by the U.S. Embassy in Bahrain.

For more information about how to obtain a visa to visit Bahrain, the embassy says to consult the Bahrain Ministry of Interior.

Those visiting Bahrain should download the BeAware Bahrain app in advance of travel and you should expect health screenings at the airport.

Jordan

The government of Jordan no longer requires travelers to take a PCR test before or upon arrival as of March 1, according to the U.S. Embassy in Jordan.

Jordan still asks travelers to register and submit a pre-travel form, during which a QR code will be provided for presentation to airline personnel upon boarding your flight to Jordan.

Travelers should note that the Jordanian government requires social distancing and face masks in public establishments and on public transportation.

United Arab Emirates

As of March 10, vaccinated travelers to the United Arab Emirates via land borders and airports, including Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) and Dubai International Airport (DXB), are exempt from submitting a PCR test before departing if they show proof of full vaccination via a certificate containing a QR code. The UAE considers vaccines approved by the WHO as valid, in addition to Sinopharm and Sputnik V.

Otherwise, unvaccinated travelers entering the UAE must continue to show results of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours of entry or a certificate of recovery from COVID-19 within one month from the date of travel. The recovery certificate must also include a QR code.

Once on the ground in the UAE, travelers must either obtain a Green Pass or show results of a negative PCR test taken within 96 hours to enter public places, including local events, exhibitions and cultural and social activities.

In use since 2021, the UAE’s Green Pass system restricts access to indoor spaces to those with “green” status on the Al Hosn app, which verifies your COVID-19 vaccination status as well as any negative test results. Before travel, be sure to upload corresponding vaccination certificates and/or negative test results to the app for use on the ground in the UAE.

Travelers under age 12 are exempt from submitting a PCR test upon arrival.

Consult the UAE government for additional details on traveling to the UAE currently.

Asia

Indonesia

Due to confusion over previously announced reopening plans, the Indonesian government released updated COVID-19-related guidance for travelers on April 5, outlining entry protocols for travelers.

Among the changes, travelers from 43 countries, including the U.S., are able to enter Indonesia (including Bali) without the need for a visa so long as their stay is for tourism purposes exceeding no more than 30 days.

Therefore, Americans age 12 and older are able to enter Bali by showing proof of full vaccination and results of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours of departure to the country.

Outside of predeparture testing, vaccinated Americans are no longer subject to quarantine.

Second, note that international travelers may enter the country through 10 airports outlined by the government in its updated international travel protocols.

Third, travelers who are partially vaccinated may still visit Bali so long as they quarantine for five days.

Minor travelers under age 18 are expected to adhere to the rules their adult companions are adhering to.

Fourth, domestic traveler restrictions no longer remain in place for vaccinated Americans, per the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia.

Lastly, all travelers should expect to undergo health checks on arrival.

Consult the embassy for the most updated travel information applicable to U.S.-based travelers.

The Maldives

On March 5, the Maldives dropped its arrival PCR test requirement. Vaccinated visitors can now enter the island nation by simply completing an online declaration of health within 48 hours of departure.

Following that, the country removed previous testing requirements for unvaccinated travelers as well, per the Maldives Immigration website.

Americans will be issued a free 30-day tourist visa upon arrival so long as they submit the aforementioned health form.

Nepal

Travel limitations to Nepal no longer exist as of March 10, meaning all travelers regardless of vaccination status can receive visas upon arrival, according to the U.S. Embassy in Nepal.

Updated guidance recently issued by the embassy also indicates that fully vaccinated travelers to Nepal no longer have to present results of a negative COVID-19 test prior to departing for the country so long as they provide proof of vaccination.

Otherwise, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers must continue to show proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure. Note that symptomatic travelers may be subject to on-arrival testing if deemed necessary.

“The Department of Immigration rescinded all previously issued orders regarding country-specific travel limitations as of March 10, 2022,” says the U.S. Embassy in Nepal. “All travelers regardless of vaccine status can receive on-arrival visas at the port of entry.”

On the ground in Nepal, face masks are required outdoors, and the Nepalese government has said that noncompliance may result in arrests and/or fines.

Bottom line

A number of other destinations have eased COVID-19 protocols while still asking travelers to jump through some hoops to visit, such as providing proof of vaccination or taking a test before departing their home country.

Overall, it seems countries are opening up to the idea of welcoming back international tourists with fewer and fewer restrictions.

This guide will continue to be updated as more countries drop rules and regulations, making it easier for travelers and clearing the way for international travel to more closely resemble what it looked like pre-pandemic.
