67 countries you can travel to if you’re unvaccinated as Covid rules eased

Countries around the world have been loosening Covid travel restrictions making holidays and business trips


Countries around the world have been loosening Covid travel restrictions making holidays and business trips abroad become accessible once again.

Over the past two years, international travel has been banned during various lockdowns and severely restricted at other times, Wales Online reports.

And even when allowed to cross borders, travellers have had to deal with testing requirements and extra forms to complete.

But as countries begin to ease their Covid travel restrictions, going abroad on holiday is now, for the most part, the simplest it has been since the pandemic arrived in early 2020.

Last month, the UK relaxed most of its entry rules in relation to Covid, making it easier for people to visit Britain and removing extra hassle and costs for Brits when they return from trips abroad.

For those who are fully jabbed, there is no longer any requirement to test when returning to the UK.

The only Covid-related requirement still in place for all travellers is the Passenger Locator Form, although there have been reports that this might be axed too.

For outbound travel, children aged 12-15 in England are now able to prove their vaccination status or proof of prior infection via a digital NHS COVID Pass.

This makes it easier for children and families to travel to countries that require proof of vaccination or prior infection to gain entry, avoid isolation, or access venues or services.

For those that are unvaccinated, entry into the UK no longer requires self-isolation.

Those who are not fully jabbed need to take a test before they enter the UK and also a PCR test on or before day two after they arrive.

With coming into the UK now much easier, many people will be thinking about jetting off abroad this summer.

But which countries are open to the unvaccinated?

The list below outlines the countries currently letting in unvaccinated people for tourism purposes and where you don’t need to be a resident or citizen or have recently recovered from Covid.

Few of them require any form of quarantine, either.

However, rules can change at short notice and so the best thing to do before you travel is to visit the Government’s foreign travel advice website.

This lists all of the entry requirements – both in relation to Covid and other things such as visas – for 226 countries and territories.

Although included in the list, the situation for visitors to Russia and Ukraine are currently more dictated by the ongoing military invasion.
