US Citizens Can Travel Internationally To These Destinations This Holiday
Borders are starting to reopen to tourists around the world, and as the holidays approach, you may be wondering if there are any countries welcoming Americans. With US coronavirus cases reaching the eight million mark, many countries are still cautious about letting Americans visit.
Although the CDC still highly recommends staying home this season, with most countries listed as “high risk”, many people are still eager to travel. So, what are your options? Those seeking warm weather, tropical escapes can consider Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Ecuador to name a few places. Most of these destinations require proof of a negative COVID-19 test before arrival and to be on the safe side you should get one even if it is not required.
If Africa is on your travel list, Kenya, Ghana, Namibia, Morocco, and Zambia are a few of the countries currently open to US travelers. European destinations are limited to Belarus, Croatia, Ireland, Malta, Serbia, Turkey and the United Kingdom being among the few countries on the list.
With statuses changing daily, here is the most current list of countries that US travelers will be able to visit this holiday season:
Antigua and Barbuda
St. Kitts and Nevis
St. Vincent and the Grenadines
Turks and Caicos
Some of these destinations are only open to US citizens from select states that have low cases of COVID-19. Be sure to check with the CDC or local government website for the most up-to-date information.
