WHERE YOU CAN GO ONCE YOU ARE VACCINATED:
A COUNTRY-BY-COUNTRY GUIDE

WHO declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020.

Shortly thereafter, our lives as we knew it came to an abrupt ‘halt’.

Who would’ve thought that we would experience a pandemic first-hand in our lifetime?

It definitely felt like something straight out of our history textbooks.

Over 1.5 years later, the world is still in the midst of this pandemic and trying their best to get it under control.

With vaccine rollouts well underway in many countries, 2021 has been better than 2020 for most of us.

The travel industry has been one of the hardest hit industries as a result of this pandemic, and I think it may very well be Spring/Summer 2022 or even 2023 before travel returns to ‘normal’.

Whatever our new normal will be.

Because let’s face it.

I don’t think we will return to our pre-pandemic norm for some time.

But perhaps that’s not such a bad thing.

As more of the world’s population gets vaccinated, travel has been making a comeback as countries begin to welcome back tourists.

Many nations are now allowing access as well as waiving quarantine and testing mandates for visitors who are fully vaccinated.

Here’s a guide to the destinations that are opening their doors to travelers who are fully vaccinated.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I will do my best to keep this blog up to date regularly, and I will cite and reference original information sources so you can check yourself. However, things can change very quickly. If you do notice anything out of date or incorrect, please contact me and I will update the information.
