As the world begins to see more and more vaccinated people against the deadly COVID-19 virus that has been altering our world for the past year-plus, travel has begun to resume, albeit timidly. Most predictions anticipate that the summer of 2021 could see a return to some international travel, and there are countries that are already preparing to host visitors from abroad.

If you live in a place where travel is permitted, you could consider traveling to these three countries which plan to be open to visitors from other countries this summer.


Mexico has been open for visitors for a while now, and that doesn’t look to change this summer. No negative PCR test is required for entrance to the country, although that doesn’t mean that you should travel if you are sick or suspect that you’ve been in contact with someone who has the virus.


Iceland has decided that it will now begin welcoming vaccinated visitors to their splendid country. A PCR test upon arrival is mandatory, but you should have results within a few hours and be free to explore the country once you find that the result is negative!


The United Arab Emirates and its fantastic global city of Dubai is open to tourists, although you will be asked to provide a negative PCR test upon arrival from less than 72 hours before your arrival. This is a great option for exploring one of the most fascinating places in the Middle East.
