EUROPEAN COUNTRIES OPEN TO VACCINATED TRAVELERS [UPDATED]

With inoculations for COVID-19 underway worldwide, it is a long road ahead before all the countries across the world reopen for travelers. Several European 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 European countries that are currently open to fully or partially vaccinated travelers. Safe Travel Barometer has compiled a list of recognized vaccines across these destinations that are open to travelers in 2021.
