Editor's note: This post will be regularly updated with new information about travel restrictions and news. It was last updated on Oct. 24, 2022. 

Are you dreaming of brighter days when you can explore the world freely again? We've got good news: The time has come.

After more than two years of travel bans, strict entry requirements, and setbacks, the trend is clear: Almost every country around the globe has reopened to Americans … with few (if any) onerous entry requirements. The days of testing to get in or quarantining upon arrival for an international trip are over. There's no need to worry about testing negative to fly home anymore, either.

All of Western Europe is wide-open like it's 2019 again after Spain quietly dropped all entry requirements last week. After two years of lockdowns, New Zealand and Australia are both open with no entry requirements. Heck, even Japan began welcoming back Americans and other foreign travelers earlier this month.

For those countries that still have travel restrictions in place, a CDC vaccination card may be all you need to enter. Several countries still have testing requirements in place, while fewer still require lengthy quarantine periods or have outright travel bans in effect. But the list of countries with complex restrictions has gotten smaller and smaller over time.

So what will an international trip require? It depends on where you're going. Here's a look around the globe, organized alphabetically by country – click below to jump!
