International travel is back on the agenda this summer for millions of Americans who are fully vaccinated, but with some countries already open to U.S. travelers — and many still not — it is challenging to figure out when and where to go.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is safe for vaccinated Americans to travel internationally, keeping in mind the COVID-19 travel destination advisories on this regularly updated list.
Americans are already able to visit Mexico and parts of the Caribbean, as well as Greece, Iceland, Croatia, and Turkey. But most of Europe still remains off limits, or with restrictions.
On May 16, Italy began welcoming passengers arriving on government-approved “Covid-tested” flights from several countries, including the U.S. Travel requirements for these flights include a negative Covid-19 test before departure, at boarding, and on arrival in Italy.
Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, and United Airlines are already offering some Covid-tested to flights to Rome and Milan from several U.S. cities, with more flights and cities to be added to the schedule later this summer.
