Several international destinations have opened their borders to those who are fully vaccinated. Below are the countries currently welcoming vaccinated tourists.
PS: Don’t forget to triple check before travelling – in a rapidly changing situation, travel protocols change from day to day.
Fully vaccinated citizens and residents in the UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar with a valid Schengen visa (if needed) can travel to Austria without the need to quarantine. While travellers from Saudi Arabia can already enter Austria with no quarantine on arrival and by presenting a negative Covid-19 test or proof of vaccination or past infection report upon entry, either in German or English languages.
Unvaccinated children under the age of 18 who are travelling with vaccinated parents are allowed to enter Austria for tourist purposes without quarantine as well. The list of recognised vaccines by the European county includes; BioNtech/Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Sinopharm & Sinovac.
All travellers must travel with a valid negative PCR test, however, not every PCR test will be accepted in Barbados. Upon arrival, you will be subject to a rapid PCR test if you are fully vaccinated or a second standard PCR test for unvaccinated travellers.
Vaccinated travellers will be allowed to fully enjoy Barbados one to two days after arrival – as long as it takes to receive a rapid PCR test result.
To be considered fully vaccinated by Barbados’ authorities, a person must have completed a full program of vaccination with a vaccine approved by the Barbados Ministry of Health and Wellness 14 days prior to travel- Pfizer and AstraZeneca are accepted.
If you are fully vaccinated and travelling by air, you may enter Georgia by presenting a vaccination certificate confirming the full vaccination course at border checkpoints. The only exceptions are passengers coming from India.
If you are not fully vaccinated, you must:
- Present a negative PCR Test result conducted 72 hours prior to their arrival;
- On the 3rd day of the stay, undergo a second PCR-test at your own expense; and,
- Must complete a passenger registration form before travelling
Currently, Greece allows restriction-free entry to all arrivals from European Union and Schengen Area countries. Besides the EU/Schengen Area countries, Greece welcomes travellers from other countries as well that have recently reported low infection rates of COVID-19.
Those who have been vaccinated do not need to provide a negative test result, as long as 14 days have passed since the second (or only) dose. A vaccination certificate must be provided.
Those who have tested positive with COVID-19 in the past two to nine months are also exempt from providing a negative test, as long as they can provide a positive PCR molecular test result, or a medical certificate confirming they previously had COVID-19.
