Who’s ready to GTFO? Multiple countries all over the world have taken serious action in the fight against the spread of COVID-19, and are welcoming travelers from the U.S. who follow specific international travel requirements upon arrival. All you have to do is a little prep work, follow some additional instructions, and keep wearing that cute mask and washing those filthy hands. Easy-peasy, lemon squeezie! You’ll be back to crossing off that travel bucket list in no time.

Explorer Chick has adventure trips to several of these destinations across the globe, all of which have taken measures to ensure the safety of their tourists. In fact, two of our destinations, Belize and Jordan, have even earned the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Safe Travels Stamp. This is the world’s first global safety and hygiene mark and indicates a destination has adopted global standardized health and hygiene protocols. Woo hoo!
