The USA has recently dropped all Covid-19 travel restrictions, meaning life has virtually resumed to normal. But in many places around the world, curfews, testing and masks remain a daily reality, especially in the wake of a summer surge of the virus.

The Covid-19 government response stringency index creates a composite score comparing the strictness of countries’ policy responses to the coronavirus pandemic, developed by researchers at Oxford University. According to this metric, the countries with the most strict policies as of July are:

  • Madagascar
  • China
  • Pakistan
  • Ukraine
  • Macau

When choosing where to travel this summer, Covid-19 and its corresponding restrictions and guidelines should remain a factor in making your decision. When planning your next trip abroad, continue to monitor the website for up-to-date information regarding entry requirements and on-site restrictions.
