As more people around the world receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and with travel restrictions constantly shifting, many are wondering where they can travel right now.

To help travelers figure out where they can and can't travel, travel company Sherpa created an interactive map tool that shows travelers where they can go based on their departure location and vaccination status.

How to use Sherpa's interactive map

Travelers can use Sherpa's map in several different ways.

To view travel restrictions by country, users can hover over a country on the map. This prompts a pop-up box with an overview of the country's current policies for inbound travelers.

For easy reference, countries are color-coded according to the number and type of restrictions they have in place, ranging from "travel is open" to "entry is restricted."

Travelers can also hide certain destinations on the map based on their restrictions levels by clicking on the "Filters" box in the top right-hand corner and selecting specific restriction levels.

To check restrictions for a specific trip, users can select their departure and arrival destinations in the top left-hand corner.

After entering in departure and arrival destinations, a pop-up box appears detailing travel restrictions, documents you must have for your trip, as well as details and exemptions, like having to pass a temperature screening at the airport or wear face masks in public. Sherpa also links out to official government websites and forms.

For example, if you're looking to visit Barbados from the United States before May 8, the map shows that you will need to quarantine for five days upon arrival at an approved hotel or villa. It links out to an update from Visit Barbados detailing changes that will take place after May 8.

You can use Sherpa's interactive map on its website.
