While the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has not completely subsided yet, an increasing number of countries are starting to open their borders to tourists again. Additionally, with large scale vaccination plants operating all over the world, it seems that when summer comes again, many people will be able to travel to certain holiday destinations again.
In fact, according to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, American tourists will be able to visit their favorite countries of the European Union in the summer of 2021, provided they can meet the EU vaccination requirements.
In this regard, it should be noted that according to tracing provided by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 35% of all American citizens have already been fully vaccinated, and 46% have received at least one vaccine.
Finally, these vaccination rates appear to be rising rapidly, indicating the possibility that the vast majority of the US population, including many cryptocurrency enthusiasts, will be able to travel abroad by the end of June.
Time to pack up
Although the past year and a half has been very difficult for every person on the planet, it is undeniable that the cryptocurrency industry has been the target of some insanely bullish market moves lately, especially over the past six to twelve months.
In comparison, since the start of 2021 alone, the total market value of the digital asset sector has grown from $ 780 billion to $ 2.4 trillion, an insane increase of more than 200%. As a result, many cryptocurrency investors have seen their portfolios grow exponentially, giving them access to free capital that they can use to take a well-deserved break.
So, here is an overview of some of the best destinations crypto users can visit to relax. The list takes into account factors such as ease of obtaining a visa, Internet availability, and the low incidence of COVID-19.
The picturesque nation of the Bahamas has been a vacation destination for many Americans and Canadians for decades, thanks in large part to its proximity to America. In fact, about 92% of all tourists to the West Indies come from the Americas.
There are currently relatively few active cases of COVID-19 in the Bahamas. Additionally, given that the country already has an infrastructure adapted to Westerners, namely high-speed internet and a first-class home, the Bahamas could be an ideal haven for many tourists this summer.
To enter, US passport holders may abstain from testing – a requirement that applies to other visitors – if they can provide legal evidence of vaccination. However, they need to complete a simple tourist medical visa application that can be processed online before traveling.
Finally, for cryptocurrency enthusiasts, it should be noted that the Bahamas was one of the first countries in the world to implement the central bank’s digital currency, the sand dollar. In fact, this is the first CBDC in the world to go beyond the beta phase and reach an official launch. In addition, organizers will actively push for more CBDC accreditation this summer so that cryptocurrency participants traveling there can witness a historic event unfolding right before their eyes.
Located in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is another island country that attracts millions of tourists every year. One of the main reasons for crowds of visitors flocking into the country is the great weather, as the summer and winter months remain mild and dry compared to other parts of Europe.
Cyprus is quite friendly to the cryptocurrency sector, despite the fact that the government recently warned its citizens against investing in Bitcoin (BTC). It is possible to convert many cryptocurrencies into local paper money through a number of exchanges operating in the country such as BitPanda and eToro, making it an ideal haven for HODLers.
To enter, travelers only need to present vaccination documents to the Cypriot government using the Flight Pass tool. It should be noted, however, that according to recent Cypriot government directives, even vaccinated travelers may be required to take random samples during their stay.
Greece, located in southeastern Europe, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, attracting millions to its many islands in the Aegean and Ionian Seas.
This is largely due to the fact that the country has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, such as the black sandy beaches of Santorini, as well as some of the most elite party venues in the world, which are mainly located in and around Mykonos.
