Travel Tuesday with Danielle ~ Belize and Iceland Open To Vaccinated Travelers!  Greece hoping to open to the U.S. in mid-May!

As more and more people become vaccinated, the interest in travel continues to climb.  Over the next couple of months, you will begin to see more countries open to vaccinated travelers.  Make sure to read each country’s requirements carefully before booking your flights!  Also, remember currently U.S. citizens still must get tested before returning home when traveling internationally.  The hope is that your vaccine card will eventually replace the need to test.


Belize has become the first country in the Caribbean to allow vaccinated travelers without a Covid test.  Full vaccination must be complete 2 weeks prior to your travel dates.  For countries like the U.S. that require a negative test to return home, Belize has established testing at their airport.



Iceland is a very popular destination for tourists, especially in the summer!  Click here for more info on visiting Iceland.


KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR GREECEGreece is planning to open to vaccinated tourists (including Americans) by mid-May.  This could easily get pushed, but it is an encouraging step towards the opening of international travel.  You can also travel with a negative Covid test!  Let’s hope Europe can get the vaccine train going, so international travel can open safely!

Please remember to travel responsibly, wear your mask and do not travel unnecessarily if you are elderly or immune-compromised! And remember to check your destination’s travel restrictions/requirements before and during planning, as well as double-checking before departure!
