Where Can I Travel?

United Airlines has released an interactive map which shows you the current travel restrictions for traveling internally within the United States. The Destination Travel Guide colors states to show if a state is closed to travelers, partially open or fully open for travel. The map can also tell you if any tests or self-quarantining is required for visiting the state.

If you click on a state on the Destination Travel Guide an information window opens telling you if entry is allowed without quarantine, if entry is allowed without a test result and if entry is allowed without mandatory application forms. The map also provides information on any current restrictions in place in the state regarding the opening of non-essential shops, bars, restaurants and museums & galleries. The map also tells you about the state's current face mask and social distancing regulations.

If you are planning to travel abroad then you might want to refer to the IATA Travel Regulations interactive map. On the IATA Travel Regulations map individual countries are colored to show how restrictive their travel regulations currently are. The darker blue the country then the more restrictive their current regulations are for international travelers. If you click on individual countries on the map you can view in detail their current international travel regulations (dated by date of publication). If you wish to travel to a country then you do need to click on the map as most countries apply different restrictions to people traveling from different countries.

Because most countries have imposed travel restrictions which are more restrictive for some nationalities than for others international travel permissions will differ depending on the country you are traveling from. CovidTravel acknowledges this by showing the international travel restrictions for individual countries. If you select your country from the drop-down menu CovidTravel colors all the countries of the world to indicate the current travel restrictions imposed on people traveling from the selected country of departure.

If you click on individual countries on the map you can also see links to that country's official travel guidance for international travelers.
