Got jabbed already? Also, have you taken both doses of your vaccine? Congratulations, you’re eligible for international travel to certain countries now. Yes, around 7 countries have re-opened their borders to fully-vaccinated Indians. You just need to adhere to a set of protocols issued by the nations for foreign visitors. But thanks to the vaccination drives, international tourism is finally resuming after being suspended for around a couple of years due to the pandemic. So, which countries are allowing entry of fully-vaccinated Indians now? The list is below:

1. The UK

From February 11, fully vaccinated Indians no longer need to undergo pre-travel COVID-19 tests to visit the UK. Those not vaccinated will need to show a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR report of a test done prior to departure. They need to take another test before or on the second day of arrival. All travellers, irrespective of the vaccination status, need to fill out a passenger locator form.

2. Cyprus

Cyprus will allow fully vaccinated travellers visiting the country to skip pre-travel COVID-19 tests from March. The travellers will be considered to be fully vaccinated if nine months have not passed from the administration of their final dose. If the final dose is taken before nine months, a booster shot needs to be taken. Travellers not fully vaccinated need to show a negative RT-PCR report and undergo a self-quarantine upon arrival.

3. Thailand

Thailand has decided to resume quarantine-free travel for international visitors from February 1 to revive the tourism sector of the nation. From February 1, travellers from all countries visiting Thailand can apply for a  ‘Test & Go’ entry scheme. Under this scheme, they will have to undergo COVID-19 tests on the first and fifth days of arrival.
