Travel is still challenging if you’re unvaccinated in 2022, but it seems each week more countries are lifting restrictions and welcoming back tourists, regardless of their status.

Here are 80+ nations you can enter right now if you’re unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated. *updated constantly*

The good thing is, we have a pretty cheap option.

Where can I travel without a vaccine?

The travel landscape in 2022 couldn’t look more different from summer 2020. Many countries have loosened their Covid-related travel restrictions, removing requirements such as PCR or antigen tests before arrival, masks on public transport and while out and about, and quarantines. There are some notable exceptions of course, such as China.

In the majority of cases, these rule changes are based on the prerequisite that the traveller is fully vaccinated, with unvaccinated travellers still facing stringent restrictions or banned from entry altogether.

However, a growing number of destinations are also starting to welcome unvaccinated travellers, with or without restrictions, for tourism purposes. Here are the countries where you don’t need to be vaccinated to visit.

Where can I travel without a vaccine?

If you are not fully vaccinated, you still have plenty of options when it comes to holiday destinations. However, you may need to take a Covid test before travel and/or on arrival. A period of quarantine — either in an accommodation of your choice or at a government facility — may also be mandatory. In some cases you may be able to get around these extra requirements by showing proof of recent recovery from Covid, or a medical exemption from getting vaccinated.

It’s always worth checking before you travel as restrictions between different countries can vary significantly.

Which countries allow unvaccinated travellers?

The countries below are open to unvaccinated travellers from the UK for tourism purposes. You don’t need to be a resident or citizen, or have recently recovered from Covid. You may however need to show negative results from a recent Covid test.

Very few countries require quarantine now — unless of course you test positive for Covid on arrival — but check your destination requirements first to be sure. These restrictions can change at any time so do double check before you travel and ensure you have comprehensive travel insurance.

What does fully vaccinated mean?

Fully vaccinated could mean the initial course of two jabs, or three jabs including a booster. There are a number of countries that put an expiry on the initial course of jabs, so if you were vaccinated more than 270 days (nine months) ago, you will need a booster. Check the entry requirements of your destination country for more information.

First, some distinctions. While it’s enticing to think that everyone who is unvaccinated shares the same views and concerns, not all people in this group have chosen their status.

There is a wealth of medical reasons why people decline to be vaccinated. Not to mention that the international vaccination drive has yet to attain the global outreach it was supposed to have by now.

So, if you would like to spend a lovely vacation in a warm place, here are countries allowing unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers.
