countries opening to tourists

Today four more countries have announced that they’re opening to international travelers, giving travelers a few more options should they be looking to get away or visit family. While the pandemic has not subsided, many countries are allowing travelers to enter with certain restrictions still applied.

South Africa

Opening to travelers who can prove they’ve taken a negative COVID test within 72 hours before arriving. They’ll be announcing shortly which countries will be exempt, stay tuned.

Thailand

Thailand is thinking outside the box. They have a ‘safe and sealed’ proposal on the table whereby they’d allow travelers to fly into Phuket and quarantine at a property, with COVID tests being applied before and throughout the stay. You’d be at a beach resort, and after 14 days be able to travel freely on the island. It isn’t clear yet that this will 100% happen in October, but it’s looking likely.

St. Kitts and Nevis

We’re not sure as to which countries will be restricted, but St. Kitts and Nevis is opening on October 1 to international travelers. Quarantine and COVID tests are required, along with proof of insurance.

Peru

The country is opening up international routes to Mexico and Chile on October 1st, and is in discussions with the United States, Spain, and Brazil. A COVID test will likely be required.
