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

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.

Dominican Republic 

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.

Montenegro

Montenegro joins the list of restriction-free travel as of January 12, 2021. 

On January 12, 2021, Montenegro removed the PCR test and/or quarantine requirement for high-risk nations and stopped the use of their ‘country lists’, that dictated which nations could visit under which requirements.

Now foreign arrivals from all nations are treated equally with having no entry restrictions when traveling to Montenegro.

**Important: As of Feb 10, Montenegro has put in temporary testing required from around 20 countries. This is expected to last 3-4 weeks, so we will leave Montenegro on this list until the next update.

Is there any update on Tanzania? It still doesn't require negative PCR on entry?

Armands

@Kashlee Kucheran,

It also depends on what airline you fly with. For example KLM and Turkish airlines require negative PCR test for boarding even if there is no need for it when you enter Tanzania. Qatar Airways however don't require it.

@Kashlee Kucheran, Thanks for your reply. I might have to call them directly to know it for sure. Would be interesting if you could create the same type of list, but with countries that you can visit having only a negative antigen test instead of PCR test. As I think many people don't want anything to be shoved inside their noses so deep :D. Just an idea

@Onliner, Thanks for the link. It is not however clear what he means by that. And I wouldn't really trust Bloomberg on anything. It also refers only to citizens for some reason. What about tourists? Very very unclear.It still looks like they don't require negative PCR test to enter the country.

Yes we've had an Armenia reopening guide since August 2020 with its own dedicated page (Click HERE to read) But it cannot be on this list because a PCR test is still required. This list is for no tests or quarantines at all
