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.

Costa Rica

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.

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.

We are in Albania right now. Beautiful country, nice people who appreciate that you visit their country, nice weather, very cheap and (almost) no stupid COVID measures. Highly recommended!

World owners dont want citizens flying. Governments and insurance companies reward airlines. Airlines make much more money not flying.

It seems like this list is getting smaller. So sad 😩 Does travel off-path has any information on countries without PCR TEST? At this point with the countries getting so limited I don't even mind quarantine to escape the test, I have young children and I don't want to put them through this risky test.

Do you know which countries that don't require PCR Test? I notice many countries like Malaysia and Israel said PCR Test required but when I read their Quarantine section it says without test 14 days and with test 10 days so does it mean PCR Test not required?

Please help. I need to leave my current location. Thank you 🙏

@Kashlee Kucheran, thank you for your quick response. I know I can't believe how quickly this countries list shrink, last November if I'm not mistaken it is around 20 countries on this list and now left to 5! I am not going to get the trial vaccine. I know 3 people in my small town who died from this vaccine and my best friend's father is now dying in the hospital after getting the covid vaccine he contracted covid and then a heart attack.

It has been shrinking a LOT recently! I can't believe only 5 nations are left right now. Basically, there isn't anything other than these listed that allow without PCR testing. The only way to bypass about 20 other nations PCR testing is to be fully vaccinated. If you are, then we have our 'countries allowing fully vaccinated travelers' that will give you some other test free options. (Click HERE to read)

@Kashlee Kucheran, Hi Thanks so much for replying;)....Im looking into Volunteering as it seems you can still leave the UK if you are volunteering...until the restrcitions are lifted here in the uk reported to be on 17th May 2021...when it is said to be legal to leave the UK....Please can you check the airlines which are NOT requiring covid tests? and post them.... I have tried to check out Wizz Air which flys to Albania ....as this is one of the countries that doesnt have any restrictions currently (as it says on your website ) but the advice on the Wizz Air website is very confusing about this and doesnt give any clear advice

You do not need a covid test or vaccine proof to get on a plane to exit the UK, UNLESS, the airline or the destination you are going to needs one. Currently there is a travel ban and you are unable to leave without an essential reason, so if your trip is for tourism you will have to wait until it is permitted

I moved to Mexico and it's amazing. Highly recommend it for those wanting to escape the dictatorships in their countries and the zombies there.
