Where Europeans Can Travel

- Latest Travel Restrictions for EU Citizens -

Last update: 4/11/2021

Europeans can travel to 116 countries right now. However, travel restrictions for EU citizens depend on the destination and the exact country in Europe they are traveling from.

As of today, most European tourists can travel to 16 countries without COVID-19 restrictions, while 68 countries require just a negative pre-trip PCR test from EU travelers. Moreover, Europeans are subject to mandatory quarantine for 32 other international destinations.

Although, in this guide, you will learn where Europeans can travel now, bear in mind that the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control advises against traveling unless it is strictly necessary.

In addition to the European travel restrictions that you will find in this guide, which we update daily, I recommend checking the travel advisor website from the country you are traveling from.

Where can Europeans travel right now map

On the following map of countries open to EU citizens, you will find all the places Europeans can travel to right now.

Where can Europeans travel

We’ve sorted the countries Europeans can travel to by entry requirements.

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 your destination (although many countries already include it in their entry requirements).

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.

Additionally, keep in mind that some countries may go into lockdown after opening their borders to tourism. We have written specific guides for all the places Europeans can travel to, where you can find out the current situation in the country, if there is a lockdown or curfew mandates in place, and if hotels, restaurants, and attractions are open to tourism.

Countries Europeans can travel to

Below, you can see where Europeans can travel to, as well as entry requirements for EU citizens and important information to consider.

Albania

If you’re wondering where to travel right now, Albania, which has been open for tourism since June 15, 2020, is a great option, since there are no entry restrictions for Europeans. There’s no need to take a PCR test before your flight or quarantine upon arrival. All you need to do is undergo a health screening when you arrive in Albania.

More information can be found here.

Andorra

Europeans can currently travel to Andorra, although Andorra doesn’t have its own airport. This means European travelers have to access Andorra via France or Spain and abide by those countries’ restrictions.

Additionally, all travelers entering Andorra must present evidence of a negative PCR or TMA test from within 72 hours of their arrival in Andorra if they will be spending more than three nights in the country.

Once you’ve landed in Anguilla, you need to take a PCR test at the airport and quarantine for ten days. You’ll then take another PCR test. If it’s negative, you can start your Anguillan vacation in earnest. More information is available on Anguilla’s official tourism website.

Antigua and Barbuda is another country European residents can visit, ever since it reopened on July 4, 2020.
