As millions of people are being vaccinated across the globe, the hope for international travel to resume has been increasing by the day as people believe the vaccine might be the ticket to travel again.
While rules will vary based on your country of origin, these are some countries that are allowing entry for vaccinated travellers.
Travellers who has been vaccinated can now visit Belize without quarantining, provided they wait until two weeks after their final dose to be inoculated against COVID-19. To enter the country, visitors must download the Belize Health App and enter their vaccine health information no less than 72 hours before traveling to Belize. Travellers who aren’t vaccinated will need to present proof of a negative COVID-19 result from a test taken within 96 hours of travel.
Mandatory quarantine will be waived for travellers to Estonia who can prove they’ve received the vaccine from one of its nine agreed global suppliers. Travellers will be required to provide a vaccination record that includes both the manufacturer and batch numbers for their vaccine in English, Russian or Estonian. Travellers who has recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months can also skip quarantine if they can supply a doctor’s certificate.
International travellers who can prove they’ve received a two-dose course of a COVID-19 vaccine can arrive by air in Georgia. There are separate entry rules for unvaccinated visitors based on their destination of origin.
One of the world’s most coveted travel destinations, Iceland will allow qualifying visitors to skip testing and quarantine if they have proof they’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine. Travellers will need to show an approved digital or paper vaccination certificate in Icelandic, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or English to skip screenings. However, this doesn’t guarantee entry to all vaccinated people, as currently non-EU citizens are not allowed to visit Iceland.
Poland announced in December that quarantine would not be required for people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19. However, Poland is still only allowing travellers from certain countries of origin.
The country is waiving quarantine for those who have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The country announced that arriving travellers won’t need to quarantine if they’ve had two doses of the vaccine and at least ten days have passed since their second dose. However, they will need to show proof of vaccination.
Travellers with a certificate of vaccination and proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure can visit this beautiful 115-island nation in the Indian Ocean. However, visitors will only be able to enter two weeks after they get their second vaccine dose. Travellers will have to upload their vaccine certificate and negative test result to the Seychelles’ Travel Authorisation application portal prior to departure, along with their passport information and flight and accommodation details.
