Traveling internationally in the post pandemic world can be challenging to say the least.
From Covid-19 test requirements, mandatory quarantines, and country restrictions, finding out where you can travel can be daunting. Here at Travel Off Path we’re going to make it easy for travelers who don’t want to play the guessing game if they have followed all necessary health protocols of a particular country.
The following are all the countries reopen for tourism, without any travel restrictions or additional entry requirements.
Before we get to the list a few things to take note of
Travel restrictions can change at any time. The decision to travel is ultimately your responsibility. Contact your consulate and/or local authorities to confirm your nationality’s entry before traveling. We do not endorse or condone traveling against the advice of government travel advisories or health authorities.
This list will be updated every time a country lifts all strict travel restrictions that were a result of Covid-19. This does not mean that it’s safe to travel to these countries. There could still be high rates of Covid-19.
Regular entry requirements such as a passport or visa still apply to all countries on this list.
Before leaving home, all travelers should have covid-included travel insurance.
To make it on this list, the countries must meet the below criteria:
- No tests before arrival
- No tests upon arrival
- No countries banned due to covid-19
- No quarantine periods
Make sure to bookmark this page as it will be updated as each country drops all additional travel requirements!
Countries Without Travel Restrictions Or Entry Requirements
Albania reopened borders to all foreigners entering for tourism on July 1, 2020.
There are currently no requirements to bring negative PCR tests, no testing on arrival and no quarantines. All nations welcome.
Arrivals will have their temperature taken upon arrival, and asked to wear masks, but that is about all for restrictions.

Colombia has become one of only 6 countries in the world to fully reopen for all tourists without testing or quarantine. This applies to both vaccinated and non-vaccinated travelers. Minister of Health, Fernando Ruiz Gómez made the announcement Thursday stating that the PCR test requirement would be dropped effective immediately.
All travelers must still complete a ‘Check-Mig’ form less that 24 hours before their flight to Colombia. The form is a health declaration stating that travelers are free from symptoms of Covid-19 and have not come into close contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
*Note: There is a temporary ban on travelers from India.
On October 26, Costa Rica removed their PCR testing requirements, and as of November 1, they dissolved their ‘countries approved’ list and started welcoming all nations once again!
No tests or quarantines are needed and all countries are welcome.
Visitors will only have to show proof of insurance, as well as fill out an online health form before entering.
The Dominican is a recent entry onto this list. Although they have been open for months, its only recently that they dropped entry requirements.
Starting on September 15th authorities will randomly administer a quick breath test to between 3% to 10% of passengers upon arrival, and will remove the need for all arrivals to bring a PCR test.
Now all nations can visit the Dominican without testing or quarantines. Only a small percentage of arrivals will be random tested.
