The travel bug has kicked in again!
It had to, after the devastation the global pandemic caused since early 2020.
Governments are lifting lockdowns and the ban on international travel as we ease out of the pandemic.
So, you may now be air traveling to your favorite destination, bucket list destination, or looking to experience new places.
There are a few exceptions and caveats though.
The U.S. government's latest COVID-19 Travel Guidance for U.S. Citizens says "Negative COVID-19 test required for all air passengers coming to the United States."
The European Union has officially recommended that all its member nations open their borders for American tourists.
The Schengen Area countries are now open to receive U.S. travelers.
The United Kingdom too has green signaled American tourists with a similar ask. All American visitors must quarantine for 10 days and also show proof of a negative Covid-19 test.
The U.S. administration has however stalled the entry of Europeans to the United States.
The Biden administration, the New York Times says, relies on science and advice from medical experts on whether to open its borders to overseas travelers.
So, what do you do in the meantime?
You may choose Caribbean travel. Travel Weekly says the Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino, located within the Dutch Caribbean city of Willemstad is offering attractive perks and discounts to families with kids up to the age of 12 as part of their summer program.
The Crane Resort in Barbados has even launched an on-site Covid-19 test lab.
Business travel is likely to resume by this year-end. Or, going by United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby's view, demand for business travel is 60% now.
The UK, meantime, has relaxed its policy for specific business travelers. Forbes says that executives who support 500 or more jobs in the UK can enter the kingdom quarantine-free.
Minneapolis, Minnesota-headquartered CWT, a Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform was quoted by Skift saying "a recovery in the global travel industry was underway and it was ready to serve customers throughout the rebound and beyond."
