Prepare to pack your passport and Pfizer record: Destinations like the Seychelles and Iceland recently announced that vaccinated visitors could enter without quarantining and move without restrictions. Meanwhile, luxury liners like Crystal Cruises require all guests onboard to be fully inoculated. That rule may apply to flights too: In November, Qantas Airlines’ CEO made waves when he told CNN they might “ask people to have a vaccination before they get on the aircraft.” Belles expects more countries, and companies, to follow suit. “Health passports will likely be required, meaning another document to keep current for traveling abroad,” she says. There’s no consensus on what these health passports will look like—whether you need to show a physical card or submit an online form—but proof, in some shape or form, seems likely to be required.
That also means six feet apart will continue to be a golden rule. “Hotels that once prided themselves on beautiful and inviting public spaces will likely continue to encourage social distancing by limiting the seating options and opportunities for people to linger,” Belles hypothesizes.
