We’re all still missing our travel plans but as coronavirus cases continue to surge, options for international travel are getting more limited. While states across the U.S. are imposing more stringent protocols, there are still some countries that are open to American travelers. Air travel may look different than it has in the past with stringent health and safety procedures, which is a good thing — airlines are doing their part to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Countries are as well. With that said, here are the countries open in November to Americans, and the rules they have in place. We’ve highlighted some great stops but the full list is also available at the bottom!
