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.

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

Countries Open to Unvaccinated Tourists: 2023 Picks!


As of the latest update, the Colombian government has lifted the requirement for travelers to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination as well as the mandatory pre-entry and arrival COVID-19 tests. This means that travelers to Colombia can now enter the country without undergoing these requirements. Additionally, the government has also lifted the quarantine period for travelers upon arrival in the country.

Papua New Guinea

The need to have a COVID-19 vaccination as well as any other COVID-related travel documentation have been removed.

This indicates that no COVID-19 testing is necessary before or upon arrival.


No COVID test or vaccination confirmation is required for entrance into Uruguay as of February 16, 2023. 

All overseas visitors to Uruguay, however, will be required to provide a health insurance policy valid in Uruguay for the duration of their stay.


Singapore Removes All COVID-19 Travel Restrictions For Visitors

The COVID-19 entry restrictions for visitors to Singapore have been lifted, including the requirement that they have received all recommended vaccinations. Visitors are no longer required to present documentation related to coronavirus for entry.

The change became effective on February 13, 2022. After that date, travelers will no longer be subject to border restrictions. This includes the removal of the requirement to present a COVID-19 vaccination certificate or a negative test result.


When visiting the Bahamas, visitors are no longer subjected to stringent health screenings.

Prior to entering the country, visitors are no longer needed to submit a COVID-19 test or confirmation of immunization.

While there is no need for quarantine upon entering the Bahamas, anyone who is symptomatic or tests positive for COVID -19 must be quarantined.


As of January 8, China will no longer require overseas travelers to undergo quarantine. This is an important step toward reopening the borders that sealed off the country from the outside world for nearly three years.

China’s National Health Commission (NHC) said last week that inbound visitors now only need to present a negative Covid test conducted within 48 hours of departure.

China is easing border controls as part of a larger effort to dismantle the remnants of its long-standing zero-Covid policy, which was abruptly abandoned earlier this month in response to widespread protests over its severe social and economic costs.

South Korea

South Korea finally dropped the testing on arrival. This means that passengers no longer need to present a Covid-19 test or a vaccine certification to enter the country.


With the removal of all travel restrictions, Tunisia, a wonderful Mediterranean country that first closed its borders due to the pandemic nearly three years ago, will once again welcome tourists as usual. Short-term visitors from other nations, including Americans, will no longer need to go through health checks before or after arrival.

On Dec. 1, Tunisia’s Ministry of Health approved lifting all travel restrictions due to health concerns and reinstating pre-2020 entry requirements.


The remaining pandemic-related travel requirement, the Air Suvidha form, has been eliminated, according to the Indian government.

Beginning today, November 22, international travelers will no longer be required to complete this health declaration form or submit a PCR COVID-19 test. Previously, they were obliged to do so in order to enter the country.
