With the vaccine rollout well underway, countries are starting to make announcements about waiving quarantine and testing restrictions for travelers who are vaccinated.
If you’re beginning to think about traveling for business again, it’s important to know where you can go and what the current requirements are as some of these countries do still have bans on citizens from certain countries (including the United States in some cases).
