Countries with quarantine free travel

Are you looking to travel safely and responsibly in countries with quarantine free travel? We are putting together and keeping updated this list of quarantine free countries, destinations and activities. 

Interactive table of countries open to travel

This interactive table of all countries lists  is not only tracking what countries are open but lots more. You can filter by travel restrictions, quarantine restrictions, who can enter, quarantine rules in detail, the health checks need on arrival, the COVID-19 certificates required, the apps required, what public transport is open, if bars and restaurants are open, tracks internal land borders, and then provides official links.

That is right for each country. 

You can view the interactive table here.

As part of a 'Responsible Tourism Recovery Plan' the Dominican Republic is wavering the Covid-19 test upon arrival while introducing airport safety measures.  There are precautions like the form for arrival and declarations to make. The country is really looking to kick-start things and at the time of writing was also fitting the bill for a free health insurance policy. 

Puerto Rico Opening

You need to have a negative COVID-19 test result to travel to Aruba.

There are some restrictions to ensure safety on transport, but there is a lot open in general and this is actually the first country I am reviewing. 

You will have to do some medical screening and the website at one point reported that a nasal swap is required at least 72 hours before departure. 

You will also need to pick up some health insurance.  www.edcardaruba.aw

Aruban Immigration Authority have started an online Embarkation and Disembarkation (ED) program. And the online ED card is 'mandatory for all travelers to Aruba'. 

St Lucia Quarantine Free Travel 

St Lucia is open to pretty well citizens from every country quarantine free. 

St Lucia is advertising,  "our island is open to visitors from all countries"for and protocols relaxed for 'Fully Vaccinated Travellers'  (give it two weeks after the second dose). 

There are a few requirements of course and new arrivals need to have a negative result from a PCR test taken no more than 5 days coming (excluding young children). You also need to complete a Man online Travel Registration Form.

United States Quarantine Travel Restrictions

The CDC is issuing advice for travel in the United States, and I am sure I will need to keep updating changes 

We will do our best to keep you updated as changes emerge. 

Also check updates with relevant organisations like the CDC.  You can also check state and local recommendations here:

What US States are open to travel

In this video, I take a look at the US states which are open to travel.

I mention two websites where you can find out which states are open in this video:

Where can Americans Travel Right Now

COVID-19 Travel Recommendations by Destination

See the updated CDC list and travel advice here.

You can view an interactive map of countries open to travel here. 

Let's start with some of the destinations that have been open for some time before I get to the recent additions list, which I will do my best to update. 

Before we continue, let's look back to March 2021 to compare how quickly things are opening up;

This video, 'Where Can Americans Travel Right Now?' also applies to nationals from many countries. While it was produced back way back in March 2021 it was a good round up at that point in time. The list starts in Antigua and Barbuda and includes Puerto RicoAruba, And the Bahamas ‘require that all travellers over 10 years old present a negative COVID-19 test’, BarbadosBelize (allowed to only stay at a government approved gold standard hotel) Costa Rica, the Dominican RepublicIreland (not quarantine free yet), Peru, and the Maldives.

And it is worth noting that some countries opened too fast and have been forced back into lockdowns.

Quarantine Free Travel in Europe

As mentioned above, I am going to work on this site daily and try to keep up with changes vlogging and even including travel deals as safe travel reopens. Then please stay patient as I start with an initial list of countries and then build from that.  


Update: European Union Plans to Reopen to All American Travelers This Summer 

"The EU has been promising fully vaccinated Americans the opportunity to return to Europe this summer, with countries like GreeceItalyPortugal, and Spain already welcoming U.S. tourists."

"Portugal reopened to U.S. tourists on Tuesday"


Spain Quarantine Free Travel 

Spain continues to move in and out of amber status with the UK traffic light system. 

As an Australian this was a recent update I received on my Australian  Safe Traveller site:  COVID-19 safety measures are in place and vary depending on the religion. And those coming from an  ‘at risk’ country need to have a COVID-19 (PCR or TMA) test which was done less than 72 hours before  travel. Don't plan to travel onto Morocco.  

Keep in mind, masks are required in public spaces.

Restaurants and bars are mostly are open with restrictions

Mexico is Open to Travel

June 11 update

Mexico is generally open for travel from visitors from most countries from what we can ascertain. 

In a recent update it looks like you don't even need to do a COVID test and mandatory quarantine has ended for now. Then remember to take precautions and travel responsibly.  Further to this, the land border crossing from the United States looks to open in late June, although you will need to take some 'quarantine measures' on arrival. 

This is also when the United States limit to all but essential travel will end. 

Hotels and resorts will not operate at the same capacities as before, but I am pretty sure this will pick up as Mexico looks set to become one of the go-to destination as restrictions ease and people become comfortable with the idea of travel again. 

Hawaii Travel Passport

The state of Hawaii is in the process of introducing a  COVID passport which was announced din May.  

The "inter-country" passport seems to ensure visitors are fully vaccinated, and 15 days has passed after their last recommended dose. 

You then register with the Safe Traveller Hawaii platform and use the app and carry a hard copy of your vaccination card.

Updates on Airline and Hotels Policies and Advice  

Hotels Combined has put together a list of travel advisories and policies by airlines and hotels. The list is comprehensive and includes information on lots of airlines. 


While we will continue to provide updates, it is important that you check with your travel providers and government advice. We don't claim we can keep up with all the constant changes and this review of quarantine free destinations open to travellers is only meant as a guide and to provide further information where you can get more information, but we will do our best to ensure information is accurate and up to date.

We do aim to make this one of the best updates on the web to make it easier for travellers to get back into to travel safely as more people become vaccinated and airlines, routs and quarantine-free travel restarts.  

While I am looking to provide constant quarantine travel updates and keep you updated on all the latest travel deals designed to kick-start travel, I am going to start with a few of the most popular destinations and countries which have opened up and are receiving travellers currently.

Many of these countries rely on  travel to support their economies. While it is not our intention to in any way get into the politics of vaccination, if you are able to get vaccinated it is recommended you do this and help those counties keep safe. In some cases, vaccination  is a requirement of your visit, in other cases you may have to have the shortest of quarantine periods and I will include a few of those as they open up.

This is an ever evolving blog and situations and openings will change quickly, then it will pay to drop into this page occasionally to see what is happening.
