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 the necessary health protocols of a particular country. 

Below is a list of countries with no testing, no quarantines, no countries banned, and no vaccine requirements.

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
  • No vaccine requirements

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

Colombia

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.

No tests or quarantines are needed and all countries are welcome.

Mexico

Mexico is open to all international tourists with no testing or quarantines. 

Mexico has truly been the king of tourism during the pandemic, as they have never closed their borders, have never enacted a testing protocol, and have kept almost everything inside the country open for tourism. Beaches, gyms, hotels, restaurants, and in some parts even nightclubs and bars, are open.

Here is everything you need to know about Mexico reopening its borders for tourism.

UK was one of the countries that have managed covid deaths and alleviate case spike. Though covid still exists, the country is managing it well that restrictions are being lifted to countries that has low covid cases. PCR test are well guarded as some countries are making it mandatory.

Interesting to see the trend. Last year there were more countries in Europe without entry requirements and this year they all dropped from the list. Only Latin American countries are left. This clearly proves that Latin America is the place to move to when the SHTF. I am looking forward for countries like El Salvador, Nicaragua and Brazil to be back on the list. I don’t expect much from Panama though.

I'm actually surprised that Brazil hasn't re-joined the list yet, I really thought it would have by now!
