Where Can U.S. Tourists Travel?


For Americans eager to continue their traveling outside of the States, there are a number of countries that have opened their borders to U.S. citizens.


With the number of corona cases in the United States  going down and the number of vaccinations going up, many countries are no longer flat out saying 'No' to American tourists.  Many of those that had closed their borders have recently reopened, though still with  restrictions and requirements.  Although many are allowing unvaccinated tourist into their country, they are doing so with greater restrictions than their vaccinated counterparts.


Additionally, the State Department categorizes most nations as Level 3, or "reconsider travel." 
As of January 26, all airline passengers to the United States must provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of departure.
 

Whether travel to "open" destinations is responsible or advisable is up to individuals to decide. 
For those who do choose to travel, it is strongly encouraged to check local government restrictions, rules, and safety measures related to COVID-19 before departure - as things are continually changing.
