As of July 1, 2022, both Solomon Islands and Vanuatu have reopened their borders for all travelers. Neither country requires quarantine on arrival, and both have requirements for testing prior to departure en route to each country. Solomon Islands requires all travelers age 18 and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, while Vanuatu strongly encourages COVID-19 vaccination.

As a result of these changes, the Department of State has updated its travel advisories for both countries. The Travel Advisory Level for Solomon Islands is now Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution, due to low COVID-19 vaccination rates. The Travel Advisory Level for Vanuatu is now Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions.
