Destinations to consider for post-COVID travel

The prospects of travel for the last quarter of the year are optimistic. There has been a fall in COVID-19 cases in many countries, easing of restrictions and opening of borders. Soon we should be able to travel to most parts of the world. 

Below is a list of destinations that will be both safe and exceptional choice for your global immersions in the next academic year.



Life in Iceland has returned to normality and the country has been widely applauded for its response to the pandemic. Travellers from the EU, Schengen Area and 14 additional countries are already allowed to visit for non-essential travel. From June 15, travellers to Iceland have the option of being tested for coronavirus upon arrival at Keflavík International Airport, or of presenting a certificate from abroad, stating that they have been screened for the virus not earlier than 4 days before departure to Iceland.


Israel has begun opening the country to domestic tourism since May 4 and is planning to establish travel bubbles with other countries that pose a low risk of COVID-19 transmission. The country has reimposed a partial lockdown to control and limit a recent spike in coronavirus infections. However, experts are certain that the situation will soon be under control and the Israel Ministry of Tourism is positive that October-November-December will very busy with international tourists.


Morocco has responded strongly to the COVID-19 crisis and since June 25 it has unlocked most of its economy. Domestic travel has also resumed and from mid-July, the borders have reopened to Morocco nationals and foreign residents and their families. The country is expected to safely open to foreign tourists over the coming months.


Rwanda has largely managed to escape from the coronavirus pandemic. Currently, the country has a very low number of cases, which is why it has decided to open its borders to the rest of the world on June 17. Commercial flights to the country are expected to resume from August 1. For now, travellers to Rwanda are expected to take a PCR test before departure and then another one on arrival. Tourists are then expected to wait in their hotel or accommodation for the results of the test, which are delivered within 24 hours. After that, travellers can roam the country freely. 


Singapore has been very successful in dealing with the pandemic and most of the economy has already reopened. From June 18, travellers who spent 14 days in Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Hong Kong, Japan, Macao, Mainland China, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam will not be required to self-isolate upon arrival. Non-essential travel is still not currently allowed, but the authorities are already planning to create travel bubbles with other nations to allow foreign tourists to visit the country.


The UAE has eased lockdown restrictions and Dubai has already opened to tourists on July 7 without the need to undergo quarantine. UAE has been praised as one of the first countries in the world to open for tourism safely. Travellers are required to have travel insurance, undergo a PCR test before departure or take one at the airport in Dubai. After completing these steps, tourists are allowed to move around the country freely.
