According to msn.com, Cyprus won’t pay you to come visit, but it will cover your expenses should you contract COVID-19 while visiting the Eastern Mediterranean island. This move is intended to draw tourism back to the island country in light of the impact of COVID-19.

3. Greece

It may not currently be on your travel list, but if contracting COVID-19 is a concern for you, you may want to consider Uzbekistan. Currently, the country has very few cases and is confident in their ability to curb the virus. They are proving this by offering $3,000 to anyone who contracts the virus while visiting.

5. Egypt

To encourage travelers to return to Egypt, the country’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is no longer requiring tourist visas to visit the South Sinai, Marsa Matrouh, and the Red Sea until October 31. Entrance fees have also been lowered at tourist destinations in Qena, Luxor, and Aswan.
