COVID-19 Vaccine Travel Restrictions: Countries Currently Allowing COVID-19 Vaccinated Americans

Covid-19 vaccines, vaccinated americans, covid-19, international flight

As vaccinations continue to be distributed and administered to United States citizens, many Americans are asking themselves if a much needed vacation will be an option this summer. Airplane classes be damned, after the year we just had, I know most of us would accept a seat in the cargo hold for the ability to travel abroad! 

Like most information distributed during COVID-19, international flight restrictions have been confusing to follow. While some countries have not yet implemented COVID-19 vaccine travel restrictions, others have enacted travel bans on all American citizens, regardless of vaccination records. 

With countries’ flight restrictions changing on a daily basis, the aircraft dispatcher experts of Sheffield School of Aeronautics thought it could be useful to compile a list of every country currently allowing US citizens who have been vaccinated to enter their borders. Our team wanted to make international flight planning a bit simpler for our readers. COVID-19 has added stress and confusion to nearly every aspect of your life, it shouldn’t ruin your vacation planning too! 

Each country below has specific guidelines we urge you to check. Some countries require additional proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test, others do not even require a vaccine. Every country listed below is currently allowing entry to vaccinated Americans.
