While the global pandemic isn’t over, many countries are beginning to see a decrease in the number of local COVID cases and have been able to roll out vaccinations to citizens. Countries have been slowly removing travel restrictions that were implemented over the last two years in response to the pandemic.

Currently, most of the destinations are in Europe, but this list is sure to grow over time as countries continue to remove restrictions.
Countries with No COVID Restrictions
International travelers can now go to Denmark without presenting proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test result. Denmark's official government website states that it is still possible for private businesses, private cultural institutions, and associations to enforce their own COVID rules. Before planning a trip there, be sure to research any venues that you are looking to visit to see if they have any specific policies listed on their website.

On the same day the United Kingdom lifted its COVID restrictions, Gibraltar followed and removed the last of its restrictions. The government has also lifted any mask and social distance rules, except in specific health and medical settings.
In early March, Ireland removed all of its COVID-related travel restrictions. Face masks are still recommended on public transportation, but are not mandatory.

Before You Go
If you’re traveling to any of these countries and have transit stops in other destinations along the way, we always recommend reviewing the transit guidelines before booking your trips. Some countries still have restrictions such as proof of negative COVID test results or mandatory forms, even if you’re not exiting the airport. It’s also important to review the return trip information when you’re heading home to ensure you meet the restrictions for re-entry.
