Did you ever dream of taking a backpacking trip through Europe or a safari through Africa? How about visiting tourist places around the world ? There is nothing better than an international adventure to get you out of your comfort zone. As anyone who has traveled internationally can tell you, international travel can be an incredibly rewarding experience. There are, however, several risks associated with traveling to foreign countries that one should be aware of before going away. In light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19, many travelers are curious as to what are the most ideal, safest and practical destinations to visit right now. However, in the case of COVID-19, it is important to ensure that all precautions are taken.
In order to minimize those risks, you need to take some simple precautions and be wise in order to have a safe and enjoyable trip. The vast majority of countries have introduced some sort of precautionary measure to protect their citizens from the virus, and some have gone so far as to implement more drastic measures, such as general lockdowns or travel bans, to protect their citizens.
Under these conditions, the best countries to travel to in 2022 are :
- United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates in the Middle East is among the only over a dozen countries in the region with a Level 1 travel advisory heading into 2022, thanks to its coveted destinations such as Abu Dhabi and Dubai. As a result, the CDC warns there is a low level of COVID-19 in the UAE, which ranks a solid 26th globally on the CDC's Global Public Health Index.
As one of the safest countries in the world, Canada is routinely among the top ten. Despite the Level 3 travel advisories from the U.S. State Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention heading into 2022, the country ranked 12th worldwide on the 2021 Global Peace Index and third among Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection's list of the top ten safest places to travel in 2022.
In 2020, tourism to Peru will go down to 22% of what it was in 2019, but this number will rise again as the world focuses on Covid-19. The year 2022 may just be the right time to make plans for a good, long, meandering trip of a lifetime, before visitor numbers start to increase again.
- Costa Rica
The Central American country of Costa Rica has put in place measures to protect its citizens from the coronavirus outbreak and has managed to avoid any reported cases of Coronavirus.
- The Bahamas
The Bahamas is a safe and convenient destination for those who are hoping to enjoy some sun, sand and sea in 2022. At the end of December, the State Department and the CDC both issued Level 2 travel advisories for the islands. Tourist officials claimed that the lower advisories are "proof that our protective measures and protocols to combat COVID-19 in the Bahamas are working".
- New Zealand
Since the COVID pandemic hit the world in 2020, New Zealand has remained off-limits to most travelers across the world. Nevertheless, industry experts are hopeful that following the arrival of 2022, it will be possible for international tourists to visit the country again sooner rather than later.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is keeping track of COVID-19 cases around the world, and this guide will take you through every step of the process, showing you travel tips to stay safe while traveling .
- Travelers should avoid places with many people, such as events, markets, and public transportation.
- Keep your hands clean, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. In public places, travelers should avoid touching surfaces and, if possible, use hand sanitizers.
- Tourists are advised to follow any advice provided by their national authorities.
- Travelers should avoid unnecessary travel to countries with active virus transmission.
- Patients with underlying medical conditions, pregnant women or those planning a pregnancy, people over 60, or those with immunological disorders should seek medical advice before traveling. As well as travelers who develop symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 should self-isolate and contact a health care provider as soon as possible.
- Travelers who have been in close contact with a confirmed or probable COVID-19 case should self-isolate and contact a health care provider as soon as possible.
It is still impossible for us to predict for certain what the future of travel will look like after two years of uncertainty, but there is at least some light on the horizon after almost two years of uncertainty.
