Here is a country-specific guide on where Americans can travel right now.

The US State Department recommends that all travelers consult each country’s travel advisories prior to booking. Some countries require COVID-19 testing; others a two-week quarantine. Check the website to see specific up-to-date health requirements, and be aware that they can change frequently.
