Here are just a few of the places where you can travel without a COVID vaccine or test. Of course, international travelers still need all the necessary documents, but authorities on all continents have adopted a post-pandemic approach toward both tourism and local life, most of them easing laws alongside border restrictions.
That means no pre-or post-arrival tests, quarantines, or, in most cases, even passenger-tracking papers, regardless of vaccination status.
Because the list below only applies to border crossings, tourists should still check domestic restrictions like using masks, keeping a safe distance, and using hand sanitizers before eating out or attending activities, especially in crowded places. Travel insurance may be required as well.
So, if you’re looking to travel, don’t let the lack of vaccinations or tests stop you! However, please consult your doctor and check current travel advisories before booking any trips. During COVID-19, no travel is risk-free.
Countries may impose further travel restrictions or new rules on short notice, so be sure you are up to date with the regulations. Check with your travel operator or airline as well for any changes in transport. Stay safe and happy travels!
