If you have existing travel plans already booked, keep a close eye on local travel restrictions and guidelines to minimize the further spread of the disease. The only type of travel insurance that offers a partial refund is “cancel for any reason” (CFAR) travel insurance. However, airlines are offering flexible schedule changes and refunds for disrupted travel.

Many countries still have travel restrictions and/or additional entry requirements for U.S. travelers entering foreign nations. Before you travel, be sure to check the requirements from the country or countries you plan to visit, in order to ensure you have all the documents and any testing you need. Otherwise, you may not be allowed to travel or worse yet, will be sent home upon arrival.

In order to help you keep up, TPG maintains a list of all the advisories that have been issued or updated as of July 2021, including all of the Level 4 advisories to date. You can also find the complete list of travel advisories on the State Department’s website.
