Destinations that continue to remain closed for tourism

Due to COVID-19 a number of destinations continue to remain shut for tourism


COVID-19 restrictions across the world are being eased as the vaccination campaigns are taken seriously. In order to bring back the economy, a number of nations are attempting to open their borders for tourism. But some places continue to remain cautious and are in no hurry to open for tourists. Here is a list of places that continue to remain shut for the travellers who are not yet vaccinated.

1. Anguilla – It is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean that reopened its borders for tourists in November 2020 but was soon hit by a huge surge of infections. The authorities were forced to shut the borders again for a month. From July 1, 2021 the place is only allowing tourists who have been vaccinated at least three weeks before they arrive. Children have been exempted from the rule.

2. Malta – Malta is taking the vaccination a bit more seriously and will be banning visitors who have not received both the jabs of the vaccine. Authorities have said that it will become the first EU country to apply such a policy. There are chances that other EU countries might also follow the suit.

3. Canada – Talking about Canada is has no intensions to open its borders for tourists. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a press conference in British Columbia was asked about the vaccination and unvaccinated travellers policy to which he responded that that is not going to happen any time in near future.

4. Spain – Spain has a number of restrictions in terms of tourists. It is currently allowing tourists from European Union Member states. The country will also be allowing tourists from the low-risk countries who can visit without the need of any diagnostic test or immunity certificates. But the rest of the people including the Americans will have to show a proof of vaccination before they enter Spain.
Rules regarding vaccination and tests vary from country to country as a precautionary measure to contain the virus.
