Countries open to American tourists looking to travel in 2021!

Updated: Feb 10


Is 2021 going to be the year for travel or nah? This question literally keeps me up at night... lol!! I think about it when I wake up, when I lay down, when I daydream, when I reminisce and any time I see an airplane flying through the sky. I'm always thinking to myself: "when will I be able to travel again?"


Seriously, I've been on the fence about planning a vacation in 2021 because I don't know if things will back to "normal" by then. Of course I've long accepted the fact that nothing is ever going to be "normal" again by any standards and the truth is- this simulation appears to be the new norm for the world. Masks, gloves, limitations on where you can and can't go, vaccines, germs, no toilet tissue! Ugh!! It's exhausting trying to keep up with all of it. But this as we know it for right now appears to be life. In all it's weird normalcy.

But if you're like me then you're probably wondering where can we even go as American tourists? With so many countries flat out banning us from visiting, it makes room for the real question: "Where can I go (that's open) for a nice vacation?"


I did some research and created this list of countries that are currently open to American tourists with restrictions. (Restrictions may include C19 testing, possible 14 day quarantine upon arrival, entry prohibited without proof of negative C19 test, being monitored by health officials)

Here's a list of top islands that are currently open for American tourists to visit:


Anguilla

Antigua & Barbuda

Aruba

The Bahamas

Barbados

Bermuda

Cambodia

Croatia

Dominica

Dominican Republic

Dutch Caribbean Islands (Bonaire, Curacao, Saba)

French Polynesia

Grenada

Ireland

Jamaica

The Maldives

Malta

St. Barts

St. Kitts & Nevis

St. Lucia

St. Maarten

St. Vincent & the Grenadines

Turks & Caicos


If any of these are your destination of choice, have fun and be safe! They are welcoming American tourists with restrictions, so be sure to plan wisely. Do your own independent research before traveling as things can change in an instant.

A few more countries that are open to Americans include:


Bangladesh

Belize

Brazil

Colombia

Costa Rica

Dubai

Ecudaor

Egypt

Ethiopia

Ghana

Guatemala

Honduras

Kenya

Mexico

Morocco

Namibia

Nicaragua

Panama

Peru

Senegal

Tanzania

Turkey

United Kingdom (mandatory 14 day quarantine)

Zambia

Again, even though these places are allowing tourists to visit, keep in mind that at any time the rules can change. Certain restrictions and risk assessments can be implemented at any time and travelers assume the responsibility of violating these rules. If you leave the country and the US decides to partake in a strict quarantine order; halting all incoming passengers or forbidding you from leaving airports until everyone submits to a vaccination- what would you do? What could you do?

Despite the grim outlook on reality, perhaps 2021 will be a much better year than 2020. Maybe a few more countries will open up and we'll all be able to resume life how it was pre- C19... Having hope is always better than having doubts. Hope gives you something to look forward to. Doubts give you a reason not to believe.
