Covid-19 Travel - March 10, 2022

Want a trip to Europe this year? Americans can still travel to European countries this spring break, although each country makes their own decisions about who can enter and what is required to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Requirements and testing rules can change at any point, therefore it is always important to check and stay updated before traveling.

However, as of the moment, here are some of the most popular European destinations and their respective travel rules and restrictions for US travelers.


US citizens can travel to France with full proof of vaccination, which you will have to show to your airline and border patrol.

Unvaccinated travelers do not need to quarantine on arrival, but they can only enter France for 'essential' reasons. They must present a negative antigen test taken within 48 hours of departure.


Vaccinated Americans are allowed to enter Germany for reasons including tourism, however unvaccinated travelers must demonstrate an important/essential reason for travel.

In addition to providing proof of vaccination, everyone aged 6 and over traveling from the US and entering Germany must have proof of a negative antigen test result 48 hours prior.


As of March 1, travelers from the United States will need to produce one of the following for entry: certificate of vaccination, certificate of recovery or negative antigen test result within 48 hours prior.


As of February 19, US citizens (age 12 and over) can travel to Portugal if they submit either: certificate of vaccination, certificate of recovery or negative antigen test result 24 hours prior.
