Updated 14 February

So you’ve had your COVID jab and after being stuck indoors for pretty much a whole year, you’re now thinking it’s about damn time you get to go out into the world and do some travelling once again.

There are destinations that currently view the vaccine drives currently being carried out in numerous countries as a means of relaxing their travel restrictions. Some countries have even gone so far as to allow entry for vaccinated international travellers without requiring testing or quarantine.

Masks are still the norm

Before we get into the list of countries, please keep in mind that while getting yourself inoculated does provide you with some degree of protection from succumbing to the coronavirus, experts are still uncertain whether or not vaccinated people are still capable of transmitting the virus to others.

For the sake of public health, please continue to wear your face mask on your travels.
