Back in June, the European Union opened itself to American travelers, ending a 15-month ban, and many Americans started dreaming of Italian beaches and Greek islands. But as Covid-19 rates continue to rise across Europe, prohibitive restrictions regarding travel, testing and quarantines might make these seem less appealing. If you’re still trying to make it across the pond this summer, here’s what you should know.
Currently, more EU travel options are available to Americans than at any other point during the pandemic. While the UK is still largely blocked off, other European countries have individual rules and restrictions.
Belgium, Croatia and Denmark are amongst the more open European countries to American travelers, but each have varying rules regarding testing. Definitely do your research and read the latest from both the US State Department and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention which provide Covid-19 risk assessments by country.
Upon your return, don’t forget that all travelers 2 years old and older must show proof of a negative Covid-19 test that’s no more than three days old to enter the United States.
Travel rules and recommendations could change quickly and without warning, so travelers should proceed with caution, and only travel when necessary. When travel resumes, we’re looking forward to getting you to your UK trip quickly, safely and comfortably.
