For now, many countries are allowing U.S. travelers, though some are adding new entry requirements.
Spain, for example, had some of the least restrictive rules but beginning Monday, U.S. travelers will only be allowed to enter the country if they first present a QR code generated through the Spain Travel Health portal. In addition, U.S. tourists must also show one of the following: proof of vaccination, a negative Covid-19 test or a certificate of recovery. Children under 12 are exempt from these requirements.
Italy now requires fully vaccinated Americans to provide a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of arrival. In addition to showing a negative test, unvaccinated travelers must also quarantine for five days upon arrival and then be tested again.
Beginning Sept. 4, unvaccinated Americans can’t travel to the Netherlands for nonessential purposes, such as vacations. Vaccinated travelers will need to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.
Unvaccinated Americans are also prohibited from traveling to Denmark unless they have a “worthy purpose” for entry as defined by the Danish government, which might include being a student or au pair, or attending a documented business meeting. Fully vaccinated Americans are allowed to enter for any reason, including tourism.
Other countries have decided to temporarily stop tourism from the U.S. Sweden implemented a ban on nonessential travel from the U.S. that will go into effect Monday, and applies to vaccinated vacationers.
