UK

Finally- the United Kingdom has made this list for American travelers.

For the first half of 2021, the UK had banned leisure travel. Now, as of May 17 with the re-launch of their ‘test to release’ program and resumption of foreign travel, American arrivals can once again travel to the UK.

As of August 2, 2021, American tourists will no longer be required to self-isolate for 10 days. A pre-flight PCR test, plus a test on arrival (or at least within 2 days of arriving) will still need to be performed.

As of 2021: All foreign passengers must provide proof of a negative PCR test that was performed no longer than 72 hours before arrival in Ukraine. Testing can be skipped for fully vaccinated passengers.
