Which International Destinations are Reopening First?
Are you dying to travel internationally again? As the coronavirus pandemic slows down, many countries are starting to open up their borders to tourists again. If you had summer plans to travel, then you’ll want to keep reading to see which destinations are reopening.
Greece wasn’t hit too hard by the coronavirus thanks to strict lockdown measures taken early on. It was also one of the first countries to announce reopening. After June 15th, Greece will open its doors to travelers once again. After July 1st, you can enter Greece without a COVID-19 test or self-quarantine.
Though there is no set date, Turkey is looking to reopen, but only people coming from Asia. This makes sense since countries like South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore were able to manage the pandemic and keep their cases low. No announcement was made on when Americans will be able to go to Turkey.
Aruba is another country that kept its coronavirus cases low. This Caribbean country is looking to reopen sometime between mid-June to early July. Passengers coming in will need to have their temperature taken, but won’t be subjected to a COVID-19 test.
US Virgin Islands
The US Virgin Islands opened up its borders to tourists on June 1st. You’ll need to go through a health screening, but no COVID test is required. Hotels and restaurants can only operate at 50% capacity, so this may be the perfect time to go and enjoy the island without throngs of other tourists everywhere.
The border lockdown between the US and Mexico ends June 22nd, but Mexico hopes to start opening hotels by mid-June. The hope is that the pandemic is under control enough to lift restrictions and kick start July with tourists.
