There are lots of little nuances and specific details to keep straight for each destination these days (and things can change at any time), but protocols generally include pre-travel steps like the following:

  • COVID-19 testing (ranging from 3-5 days prior to departure)

  • Completing an online health questionnaire/approval process

  • Mandatory travel insurance that includes medical coverage for COVID-19 while in destination

  • Proof of full vaccination

Most countries are doing health screenings at the airport upon arrival that may include temperature checks, and travelers are required to wear face coverings on their flights, in the airports, and during transportation.

At the resorts, staff are required to wear face coverings at all times, and they are asking guests to wear face coverings in designated indoor spaces like: the lobby, retail stores, elevators, and waiting areas of common facilities (e.g. spa, beauty salon, restaurants/bars, etc.). Guests are not typically required to wear face coverings at the beach, the pool, or in restaurants when actively eating and/or drinking.

If you're starting to think about planning your next trip, you might be wondering “Where can I travel right now?” So, to help you with this, I’ve put together a list of the top eight places to travel in 2021.
