If you've had your COVID-19 vaccination done - both doses - then you're eligible to travel to, at least, seven different countries that have either dropped their border restrictions or eased them for people who are fully COVID-19 vaccinated and want to travel there without having to quarantine.

Qatar also recently announced that fully vaccinated individuals were now exempt from quarantine requirements following travel abroad or exposure to a COVID-19 positive case when they return.

If you're full vaccinated against COVID-19, why not take a trip to Seychelles which has removed quarantine requirements for people wanting to travel to the beautiful island for a little getaway. However, a PCR negative test result obtained within 72 hours of travel is still a requirement, along with a Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) certificate that verifies they are fully COVID-19 vaccinated.

Seychelles which is made up of 115 islands plans on becoming the first county to vaccinate all of its people. If it achieves this, it will further relax its requirements and travellers will only require a PCR negative test obtained within 72 hours of travel. (CNN)

Estonia is accepting travellers who have been fully COVID-19 vaccinated or those that have recovered from the virus in the last six months.

Head of the Health Board's Infectious Diseases Surveillance and Epidemic Control Department, Estonia, Hanna Sepp told Err News:

"[A certificate] must reflect the individual's personal data in Estonian, Russian or English, as well as the disease against which the person has been vaccinated, when the vaccine was formulated, which vaccine was used, as well as data on the issuer of the vaccine, and the vaccine batch number."
