Are you dreaming of brighter days when you can explore the world again? Same.

As we try to remain patient and wait for safer travel days to return, we need to be cognizant of how different countries are coping with this pandemic and what that means for international travel. And that’s constantly changing.

Several countries around the globe have laid out plans to reopen to tourism as soon as this summer, while others remain locked down for the foreseeable future. And even with some countries restarting travel, restrictions with health screenings or who is allowed to enter could make it much more complicated.

Here’s what we’ve found, organized alphabetically (click below to jump!)
