COUNTRIES OPEN TO VACCINATED TRAVELERS [updated]

Safe Travel Barometer Tracks 70 Countries that Welcome Fully Vaccinated Travelers (as of August 25, 2021)

With inoculations for COVID-19 underway worldwide, it is a long road ahead before all the countries across the world reopen for travelers that have been fully vaccinated. Several countries have reopened their borders to travelers with varying requirements around quarantine upon arrival, a negative COVID-19 test or vaccination status. However, vaccination disparity worldwide is likely to make travel complex in the short- to medium-term. Moreover, the maze around recognized vaccines adds to the complexity to travel.

Below is the list of countries that are currently open to fully vaccinated travelers. Safe Travel Barometer has compiled a list of recognized vaccines across destinations that are open to travelers in 2021.
