Many destinations around the world have travel restrictions in place due to Covid-19. Wouldn't it be nice to see on a map to which countries you may travel to, from the country you live in?
Have you ever wondered where you can travel right now?
If have already tried to find an answer on the internet, you probably have found tons of information. But most of them are confusing or not up to date. Some restrictions count for Americans, others for Germans only and so on.
Tool that shows you where you can travel
We found a very useful tool, Covid-19 travel info by Skyscanner.
By selecting the country you live in, this tool shows you all other countries where you can travel to right now, on a map.
Furthermore, you will get information like if you have to go into quarantine up on arrival or on return, or information about new COVID-19 cases from the current week and more.
The map shows you information about each country. GREEN for low restrictions, ORANGE for moderate restrictions and RED for Major restrictions.
Below is the map that is shown to you when you select UK as the country you live in.
What do the restrictions mean?
- Low Restrictions: You can travel here and likely won't need to quarantine when you arrive or return.
- Moderate Restrictions: Travel here is possible if you meet certain entry regulations which can include taking a COVID-19 test. You may also be required to quarantine upon arrival and/or return.
- Major Restrictions: Travel here may be suspended. The country may be closed or entry is only possible if you are a citizen and/or meet strict requirements.
This tool seems to be pretty accurate, but to be sure we would recommend double-checking with the local government advice.
This is another excellent tool for travel in Europe. You will get all imaginable information about Covid-19 from each country in the EU.
You will get information about restrictions in place, including quarantine and testing requirements for travelers and mobile coronavirus contact tracing as well as warning apps.
Furthermore, it shows you the situation in the hospitals, like Hospital occupancy, hospitalization admission count for COVID-19 and much more.
Re-open EU has 4 different categories which are available:
- Health Situation
- Coronavirus Measures
- Other Info
The colors on this map have a different meaning than in the previous tool.
