Anybody who lives with the travel bug knows that wanderlust never wanes. The occasional road trip and weekend getaway appease some of the desire to travel, but eventually, international travel beckons. While non-essential travel is currently not recommended, conditions are ever-changing. Nations are welcoming tourists with caution, and the list of countries accepting tourists from the U.S. is steadily growing. Many countries require travelers to take a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, which can detect if someone has a virus. Whether or not to hop on a plane is up to each person, but it helps to stay informed on ongoing travel restrictions and to visit each country's website for the most up-to-date information.


01Countries with no restrictions

Several countries are accepting American tourists without needing much more than a temperature check at the airport. Countries that are all fully accessible upon arrival without further testing or contact tracing include:

  • Albania
  • Egypt
  • Mexico
  • Serbia
  • North Macedonia
  • Turkey

Brazil only asks visitors to purchase travel health insurance before arriving.

Travelers to the Maldives need only fill out a health declaration card. Keep in mind, however, that your stay is limited to the island's approved resorts until further notice.
