Countries open List – EN

We’ve sorted the countries that have open borders by the different entry restrictions they have.

In some cases, countries may have different entry requirements based on nationality or where travelers have spent the last days before the trip. To classify these countries, we’ve used the corresponding color for entry restrictions that apply to most tourists that visit that destination.

You can also check our specific guides on:

I’d like to point out that it’s essential to have travel insurance that covers COVID-19, whether or not it’s an entry requirement for where you want to travel (although many countries already include it in their entry conditions).

Also, these new COVID-19 entry restrictions do not exempt travelers from needing a valid tourist visa if it was already required before the pandemic. You can check whether you need a visa to travel below.

Besides, keep in mind that some countries may be locking down after opening their borders to tourism. We have written specific guides for all the countries open for tourism where you will find the current situation in the country, if there is any lockdown or curfew mandates in place, and if hotels, restaurants, and attractions are open to tourism.
