Few would have predicted in 2020 that travel safety will continue to be a concern in 2022, two years into the pandemic. However, as countries have struggled with revolving lockdowns, lack of interest in vaccination, and new coronavirus variants, barriers to travel continue to exist.

Travel safety precautions are expected to continue into 2022. Here’s what to anticipate:

You Must Be Fully Vaccinated Before Traveling Overseas

Most countries are only allowing fully vaccinated tourists across their borders. Some allow individuals who have a negative PCR test to visit, but these people may be required to undergo a period of quarantine or additional PCR tests upon arrival.

Arriving fully vaccinated creates the least amount of stress when traveling to new places.

You May Be Barred from Restaurants, Bars, or Hotels Without Full Vaccination

Many countries have set up passes that allow restaurant staff and hotels to simply scan a QR code to find out whether you are fully vaccinated and allow admittance into their establishment.

The EU has created a COVID Pass that is recognized throughout the Schengen Area and in some countries that are not part of the Schengen but are part of the EEA.

While COVID passes have not been fully adopted in the United States, if cases rise or new outbreaks occur, there may be governmental pressure to adopt some type of universal pass.

Restrictions Requiring Masks May Continue

Currently, masks are required in some locations within the U.S., while in others, they are not required at all. Overseas regulations regarding mask usage vary widely, with large parts of Europe requiring masks, while many areas of South America are less restrictive.

Continue to check local laws before traveling anywhere so that you have an understanding of mask requirements.

Domestic Travel May Be Easier than Going Overseas

Domestic travel within the U.S. is much less restrictive than traveling overseas. While you may need to show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test before flying on an airplane, you can easily hop in your car and take a regional vacation.

In fact, domestic travel within the U.S. actually increased in 2021 due to the many restrictions that were imposed upon American citizens hoping to travel overseas.

If you are considering a domestic vacation and enjoy long-range hunting, take a look at the trips offered by Outdoor Solutions. They are an outdoor adventure company that can help you blow off some steam away from the stress of the pandemic.

Travel within the U.S. is considered safe since you can expect hotels to follow health protocols and have well-established cleaning routines. Rental car agencies must follow the same procedures and have created significant rules for ensuring their vehicles are properly sanitized.
