The United States State Department recently lifted its worldwide “Do Not Travel” advisory, but before you go ahead and book your tickets to the Bahamas, you’ve got to assess the current international situation for American passport holders.
As the U.S. continues to break records in COVID-19 cases, countries around the world are implementing restrictions for American tourists who are ready to travel internationally. One of the biggest decisions occurred when the European Union excluded the U.S. from the list of countries whose citizens are allowed to travel within the EU. The 27 nations that make up the EU are not alone in their hesitation. In fact, most countries have some kind of restriction for U.S. citizens.
This isn’t the case for all countries, and American citizens who want to travel despite the pandemic do have some options. The following countries are currently open to American tourists. If you’re considering a trip to one of these countries, check for their most recent coronavirus travel updates as well as the CDC’s updates
If you have decided to take a non-essential international trip while the pandemic is still ongoing, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has additional guidelines before, during, and after your trip to ensure you’re traveling as safe as possible.
If you are not feeling well, please refrain from traveling. Additionally, each country’s handling of COVID-19 can change rapidly. There is no guarantee that any of the listed countries will stay open to American travelers. Check with your travel insurance and agents to see what your options are in the case that restrictions are put in place.
