With all the rules and regulations, figuring out where Americans can travel at the moment is no easy task. The European Union has barred U.S Travelers due to the global Corona Virus Pandemic, Canada and Mexico have closed their land borders. So with all this, it is understandable that the number question in the mind of every American travelers’ mind is where can I go, if anywhere?
COUNTRIES AMERICANS CAN TRAVEL:
As of August 24, Americans are allowed to travel to these countries:
On June 15, Albania opened its land borders and commercial airports to international travel. Although travelers do not have to show a negative COVID test upon arrival, they should expect heightened screening and quarantine measures, per the U.S Embassy in Albania.
After Opening (and then closing) to Americans in July, the Bahamas is once again open to travelers from the United States with some fine print. All travelers must show proof of a negative COVID- 19 test and quarantine for two weeks upon arrival in the country.
Barbados reopened its international airport to commercial flights on July 12, and as of August 5, has been enforcing new travel protocols for all arriving visitors. All travelers must submit an Embarkation/ Disembarkation form 24 hours before departure, wear face masks at the Airport, and undergo a health screening upon arrival.
U.S citizens are allowed to enter Belarus, and no negative COVID test is required. According to the U.S Embassy in Belarus, there are health screening procedures in place at airports and other ports of entry.
As reported the European Union has said it will not allow U.S travelers. But according to the fine print, countries within the EU can decide to ignore the recommendations and Croatia has done just that. Visitors do not have to quarantine but do have to present confirmation of accommodation.
