by Brook Wilkinson | March 8, 2021

Of the countries that are admitting U.S. residents with no 14-day quarantine, those in the first section below are the ones where we believe it is possible to enjoy a low-risk, smart trip if you time it right and book through the right destination specialist.

Additional countries that are open to U.S. travelers without quarantine are in the second section. The third section lists the countries that require a lengthy quarantine for U.S. residents.

It can be a challenge to untangle the rules for getting into these places and then successfully meet those requirements. So start with the intel below, then ask us for the best sources to help you through the necessary hoops (whether that’s procuring your Covid-19 test results within the required time frame or scoring an idyllic homebase for a shortened quarantine) and pave your way to a safe, smart trip. If you prefer to stay in the U.S., we can advise you on that too.  Are you a resident of another country?  We can probably help, so tell us what you have in mind.

    Since the United States is not allowing anyone in from Ireland… If they first travel to Mexico and stay there for 14 days, can they then fly to the US with a negative test?

  2. Linda Kolb

    What happens if you go to South Africa for 2 weeks and then want to travel to Bostswana? Do you have to get another test in South Africa?

    1. Brook Wilkinson Post author

      Yes, since Botswana requires a test within 72 hours of a traveler’s departure to the country, you would need to be tested during the last few days of your time in South Africa. Our Trusted Travel Experts can usually arrange for this to be done at your camp or lodge so as not to interrupt your itinerary.

  3. Chris Menzel

    Brook,

    What an interesting update on the state of international travel! It looks like we still have some fantastic options if we are willing to jump through a few extra hoops. Savvy travelers need not worry.

    Best,
