Countries Now Open To US Tourists

Nomadic FIRE Countries Open Right Now US

NOW ONLY UPDATED FOR US CITIZENS

I have some good news for travelers who have been anxiously asking Google “When can I travel again?” The answer is now. While most countries are still locked down (I am on day 86 of home quarantine in the Philippines), several countries have declared themselves open for tourists. If you have an EU passport, most of Europe is open to you. If you are from the US, your options continue to be limited. 

With American travel restrictions continuing, I will ONLY BE UPDATING COUNTRIES OPEN TO US CITIZENS. Currently, the number of countries open to US tourists stands at 19.

For EU citizens, you can find information relevant to you here

Where Can I Travel To Now?

When looking at options for my next destination, I found lots of rumors, questionable sources, and dated information on websites and social media. To help make research easier for others, I compiled a list of open countries, with travel information verified to a government website. Sources are linked, so you can see where I tracked the data.

With so much inaccurate information floating around, I didn't want to rely on other travel blogs or even news sites. I wanted to make my travel decisions on verified government released information. I'm updating information as I find it, but let me know if you find anything inaccurate. 

Most advice coming from health experts and government officials continues to be “shelter in place” and recommends limiting any “non-essential” travel. The European Union is leading in opening up land and air travel. However, most countries are only allowing in other EU citizens, or neighboring countries considered “low risk.” If you are a US citizen looking for countries to visit, expect slim options.
