5 Beautiful Vacation Destinations You Can Visit Today (and 5 You Can’t Just Yet)

Where can I travel right now?

That’s the thought on many of Amercians’ minds, as we’re all planning our summer vacations. Restrictions are lifting all across the US, and countries around the world are opening their borders. As such, planning a trip is much easier than it’s been since the pandemic began.

However, there are still many places where you can’t yet travel, or where a 14-day quarantine is required upon arrival.

Here are 5 of the beautiful international vacation destinations that you can plan a trip for today, and 5 you can’t visit… yet.

Where Can I Travel Right Now: Denmark

If you’re American and have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before visiting, you can visit Denmark. There, you can discover their national park, visit Copenhagen, enjoy the Hans Christian Andersen Museum, and so much more.

For inspiration, here are the 25 best things to do in Denmark. Happy travels!

Where Can’t I Go: Austrailia

Unless you’re granted an individual exemption, Australia’s borders are currently closed and entry is strictly controlled. The exemption categories including;

  • If you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident
  • An immediate family member of an Australian citizen or permanent resident
  • If you’ve been in New Zealand or Australia for 14 days or more immediately prior to arrival by air in Australia.
  • Airline crew (though their stays are also restricted after a COVID-19 breakout)
  • A person who holds a Business Innovation and Investment visa

Where Can I Travel Right Now: Iceland

Iceland is open to anyone who is fully vaccinated or has recently recovered from COVID-19. Before traveling, you’ll need to fill in a pre-registration form and submit a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before your flight.

If you’re unvaccinated, you’ll need to take another test upon arrival and a third test on your fifth day of travel. While these tests are free, you’ll have to quarantine until you receive the results.

If you’re vaccinated, you don’t have to worry about any of that.

Enjoy your visit by doing some of these Icelandic activities.

Where Can’t I Go: Canada

Currently, the border is closed until July 21. During a recent conference, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated he wants to wait until at least 75% of Canadians are fully vaccinated before reopening the border. Other Canadian officials suggest that the borders should open once 75% of Canadians have their first dose.

Either way, when the border does open, it will likely happen in phases.

Where Can I Travel Right Now: Greece

Greece reopened to US travelers on June 20. However, you must provide proof of vaccination, proof of recent recovery from COVID-19, or have a negative test taken 72 hours before visiting. While there’s a curfew in place from 1:30 a.m. to 5:00 a.m., restaurants and attractions are open. Also, don’t forget to bring a mask.

Where Can’t I Go: Sweden

On May 28, the Swedish government extended their entry ban until August 31 (EU citizens are excluded from this). Vaccinated Americans may be allowed entry sooner than that, but nothing is for certain yet.

Where Can I Travel Right Now: Switzerland

As on June 28, fully vaccinated Americans can visit Switzerland. The Swiss government has also announced they are fully reopening restaurants and events and leisure facilities.

To visit, all fully vaccinated travelers by air will need to fill out this online form for incoming travelers.

Where Can’t I Go: Brazil

Between COVID-19 outbreaks and increased crime, Travel Advisory suggests Americans avoid traveling to Brazil for now. It also suggests you shouldn’t travel to areas within 100 miles of Brazil’s land borders with Paraguay, French Guiana, Guyana, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, or Suriname.

Where Can I Travel Right Now: Curacao

Curacao’s warm waters are ideal for suba diving, snorkeling, and other water activities. While you’re there, visit the Queen Emma Pontoon BridgeChristoffel National Park, and visit the many clear water beaches that Curacao must offer. All you need is a negative test taken within 72 hours of departure.

Where Can’t I Go: Asia

Most of Asia still has active travel bans. Those that don’t almost always require a health screening and/or 14-day quarantine, including China, Japan, South Korea, and Laos. Hopefully these travel bans will ease as more of the world’s largest and most populated continent gets access to more vaccines.
