Mexico

Royal Sands hotel in Cancun

 

The US/Mexico land border is still closed for NON-ESSENTIAL travel until November 21st. Although, Americans may FLY into the country. As of this writing, no COVID testing or quarantine is being required. The beach destination of Cancun was the first to receive the “safe travels” designation from the World Travel and Tourism Council. I recently traveled to Cancun (separate post) and there were several safety measures that were being implemented at the airport and the hotel where I stayed (Royal Sands Cancun). Masks were required in public areas inside the hotel, employees wore masks and there were many hand sanitizers stations all throughout. Note that the state department has issued warning to some Mexican states due to high crime.

Croatia

The beautiful country in the Adriatic is accepting Americans provided you show them a negative COVID 19 test that is not older than 48 hours (starting from the time the swab was taken until arrival at the border. This can prove challenging if you factor in your flight and layover time, but for those who can pull this off, this might just be the best time to visit Croatia. Which has recently been soaring in popularity with the Game Of Thrones fandom crowding Dubrovnik (the main filming location for King’s landing).

All arriving passengers are to complete an information form and will be checked for symptoms. Note that American Citizens must obtain an e-visa prior to travel to Turkey. Which has been the rule even before the pandemic. It is an easy online process that can be done in minutes. These information are for general tourism. Note that requirements for medical tourism are different.

American Citizens may enter the UK without COVID-19 testing, but a 14-day quarantine is required unless, you are coming from and have spent the last 14 days in one of the “travel corridor countries.” In which case you don’t need to undergo quarantine. Note that if you transited in a country that’s not listed in the “travel corridor countries” en route to the UK, then you will still be required to quarantine.
