The Healthcare system is not the only one who faced a severe crisis because of the Pandemic of COVID-19. The travel industry has always been a significant element of the European economy.

    It seems that Germany has passed the crisis quite easily comparing to other European countries. Mostly, because of the serious restriction that was placed in the country. Now Germany seems o ease most of them and opens its borders. Foreign travelers will not need to prove the necessity of entering the country.
    At the same time, the German government strongly advises its citizens to avoid traveling abroad. Some European countries still have complicated quarantine situations. Germany continues to observe the travel restrictions with Sweden, Finland, and Spain.

    Spain

    Instead of the total lift of travel restriction, Spain decided to run a two-week trial to observe the situation. The borders are supposed to open on June 21. Foreign travelers won`t have to observe the two-week quarantine any more.

    Switzerland

    This small peaceful mountainous country has always been a center of European Tourism. Tourists were particularly expecting Switzerland to welcome them back. At the same time, it has a significant role in the global economy. Mostly because of that, Switzerland opens its borders also for some non-European countries. Those are members of the European Free Trade Association.

    France

    France fully opens its borders for European travelers. At the same time, most restrictions will remain valid for British citizens. They will have to prove a valid reason to enter the country. Also, travelers from the UK will have to observe the two-week quarantine after entering France. This restriction has been canceled for visitors from all other European visitors.

    Greece

    The same two-week observation is still obligatory for most tourists who decide to visit Greece now. Although the country has suffered mostly because the tourist flow has stopped, even the Greek government claims it cannot afford a new Coronavirus wave. Therefore Greece continues to observe most precautions. Tourists from France, Spain and some regions of Italy will have to spend 14 days in a specialized facility after entering the country.

    Nordic Countries

    Denmark, Iceland, and Finland announce significant easements of travel restrictions between them.
    Finland also allows entrance to the citizens of Baltic countries – Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
    Iceland promised to offer a possibility of choice for the visitors. They may either do the coronavirus test or spend two-weeks under quarantine restrictions. This rule does not apply to children under the age of 13.

    Of course, the restriction lifting will be gradual and take some time. Europe has suffered dramatically from COVID-19. Now it is looking for the most rational ways to get out of the crisis. Governments need to restore the economy. People need to meet their friends and relatives abroad. All these factors have influenced the decision of the European Commission to start the process of the easement. Anyway, the ongoing lifting of restrictions is a trial. It may end up with a total opening of borders. But it can also cause a new wave of disease that will lead to strengthening measures.
