With almost half of the U.S. adult population having received their first vaccination, more and more Americans are in search of destinations that cater to vaccinated tourists. Some countries are now allowing vaccinated U.S. travelers to enter without the need for Covid-19 testing or quarantine.
Here are the countries that will allow Americans to skip Covid-19 testing if they have been fully vaccinated for Covid-19.
Vaccinated Travelers: Starting May 1, 2021 The Bahamas will make exceptions to allow fully vaccinated passengers to skip PCR testing. The last dose must have been received at least 14 days before entering.
Non Vaccinated Travelers: Without proof of vaccination, passengers will need to bring a negative PCR test no older than 5 days to board the flight, plus another rapid test on island if staying longer than 4 nights.
Vaccinated Travelers: While Belize does require a negative Covid-19 test for entry into the country, vaccinated American travelers are able to skip this requirement. Travelers must have been fully vaccinated for at least two weeks before arrival.
Non Vaccinated Travelers: Belize will allow travelers who have not been vaccinated if they present a negative Covid-19 PCR/Antigen test no older than 96 hours.
Vaccinated Travelers: Croatia will allow American tourists who have been fully vaccinated to enter the country without proof of a negative Covid-19 test.
