Where Can I Travel During Covid-19?
That is the question that many travellers have on our minds. We have developed BringBackTravel as a resource to show the current status of borders for all countries, as well as the ability to see where you can travel as a tourist based on your passport or where you are coming from.
Our map and information is based solely on traveling for tourism purposes. The regulations can significantly change and can be completely different then shown here if you are a returning citizen, are born in that country, visiting immediate family members, traveling on business purposes, medical purposes, diplomatic passports/missions and other reasons. For those travel reasons you should do your own research.
Please note that we are strictly a resource. We cannot be held liable or responsible if you decide to book travel and be denied boarding or entry into a country. Always do your research, confirm visa/COVID-19 requirements with the airline, embassy, travel agency or any one else involved prior to booking your travel.
We work diligently to update this information daily as it changes rapidly. It may at times be inaccurate or the information may be very new, if so please report it to us directly on the map page using the “Report New or Inaccurate Information” link on the country information tab.
The Current Situation Map
This map show the general status of borders, not taking into account the passport or citizenship you hold. It’s simply a general overview of each country’s stance of tourist travel in the current stage of the pandemic.
In order to simplify the view and status of where you can travel to we have set the following “Statuses” for each country which you will see on the map.
Dark Green (Level 3): Open as before the pandemic, perhaps a few nationalities still excluded from visiting, existing visa regulations that applied before still apply. General health precautions in place. Random testing on arrival, questionnaires etc.
Green (Level 2): Mixed conditions but now open to a large amount of countries, compared to pre-pandemic. For example a COVID-19 test may need to be done on arrival or is required before departure as a document, or some other certificate. Less then 24 hour quarantine or waiting time needed in order to get the test result.
Light Green (Level 1): Mixed conditions but now open to a small number of countries, compared to pre-pandemic. For example a COVID-19 test may need to be done on arrival or is required before departure as a document, or some other certificate. Less then 24 hour quarantine or waiting time needed in order to get the test result.
Yellow: Very limited opening, open to very few countries with limited air routes. May still require a quarantine period.
Orange: Extended quarantine period (exceeding 24 hours) for most or all visiting nationals
Red: Completely locked down for most or all visitors (Unfortunately most of the world at this point)
Purple: Reopening soon to some nationalities, click for more info
Grey: No or very limited information
“As a Passport Holder Of …. “
On the top of the map, there is always an option to specify what passport you hold to see what restrictions are in each country.
You simply select the passport you hold from the drop down menu. It will assume you are traveling from the country of which the passport you hold, and you have been in that country for the last 14 days. It’s important to understand that if you are not traveling from the country you hold the passport of, the regulations can significantly change and you should do further research.
Green: Open for you as before the pandemic, existing visa regulations that applied before the pandemic still apply. Some countries may do random COVID-19 testing and/or health checks on arrival. You should arrive in good health and not feel or display any symptoms.
Light Green: Possible to travel, but you must have a COVID-19 test either before departure or on arrival at your own expense. Or some kind of medical or other certificate/document is required. It assumes you can wait less than 2 hours upon arrival for the test result. Certain countries may waive the testing fees. No quarantine period beyond 2 hours to await test results.
Yellow: Same as light green, but in addition to the COVID-19 test you need to do a mandatory quarantine subject to the government regulation for a period of 2-24 hours or less typically in a hotel room near the airport/border to await the test results.
Orange: Voluntary Quarantine (Not Enforced) required of more than 24 hours up to 14 days or more. Please remember, by not voluntarily quarantining you are putting others at risk.
Dark Orange: Strict Quarantine (Enforced/Tracked) required of more than 24 hours, up to 14 days or more and/or some more condition(s). A fine and or prison time may apply if you are found in violation of the quarantine.
Red: Completely restricted at this time to travel for tourist purposes, based on your passport.
Pink: Special Extra Conditions may apply, click on the country for more details.
Light Purple: Reopening soon for your nationality, conditions apply, click for more information.
Grey: No information or unknown

I feel the pain of not traveling and not being able to live the the digital nomad life as before the pandemic, I know I’m not the only one.
With this resource I hope I can inspire people and provide a sense of hope that the world will soon reopen, give you new travel ideas and most importantly bring back the many jobs and livelihood to the people that need them the most.
