As coronavirus cases continue to soar throughout the US, other countries are reopening for tourism, but there’s a catch; Americans won’t be welcomed everywhere. In response to the United States, leading the charts with the most COVID related infections and deaths, countries around the globe are banning US citizens from entry. According to Travel Noir, out of 195 countries worldwide, Americans are only allowed to visit at least 24, and many have strict quarantine guidelines that travelers must adhere to.
Over the years, the United States has exercised its right to ban people from just about anywhere for any reason. In a major turn of events, Americans are now finding themselves humbled at being restricted in where they are allowed to go. As many struggle with staying indoors and have an itch to travel, their passport is proving worthless as the list of approved countries accepting Americans is pretty short. If you still have a desire to get away, here’s a list of places you can still visit:
Albania- no COVID testing or quarantine requirements.
Antigua and Barbuda- COVID testing required upon arrival.
Aruba- proof of negative COVID test results need to be provided 72 hours prior to travel.
Bahamas- travelers, must complete an online health declaration and submit proof of a negative COVID test taken within the past 10 days.
