Current as of 7/23/21

Even though it’s quite early in the vaccine rollout, we’re already to a point where countries are starting to make announcements about waiving quarantine and testing restrictions for visitors who are vaccinated.

But hold your horses! Some of these countries do still have bans on citizens from certain countries (including the United States in some cases), so it might be a bit early to start dusting off that passport. Having said that, we believe that once countries start to open, it’s a foregone conclusion that others will follow.

We promise to keep you updated on which countries are welcoming back the fully vaccinated. Here’s where things stand right now.
