COVID-19 introduced a concept that many travelers weren’t anticipating: major bans on entering a large number of countries. This was more apparent for some countries than others, with some nations closing their borders for years at a time and with much stricter regulations. So if these strict rules threw you for a loop, we’re happy to announce that these following countries are finally open to visitors.


Considering the fact that Japan was one of the most sought-after destinations in the entire world, it serves as no surprise that people were bummed over them closing their borders for as long as they did. But if you’re truly interested in visiting Japan, you can finally do so, so what are you waiting for?

Australia and New Zealand

We figured we’d lump these two countries in with one another because let’s be real: so much of the world sees them as a unit, even though they’re far from it. After all, they’re both in Oceania, they’re both so far from the rest of the world, they both have some of the most gorgeous natural landscapes in the world, and they both closed their borders for the majority of the pandemic.

But if you’re interested in checking out Australia and New Zealand, you can totally do so now! Strap on your backpack, book some tickets, reserve your vacation days, and fly down under!
