The European Commission, executive arm of the European Union, has launched a website to provide up-to-date information on the region’s travel restrictions.
CNBC reports the aim of Re-open EU is to boost tourism at a time when the industry is reeling under intense financial pressure due to the coronavirus.
The website informs travellers where they can visit, how to get there and what coronavirus-related restrictions are in place.
Re-open EU “will provide travellers with easy access to information to help them confidently make their travel plans and stay safe during their trip,” Thierry Breton, European Commissioner, said in a statement.
Once users choose a destination, a map will appear to show what safety measures are in place, as well as other practical information.
If you plan to travel to France, for example, the website informs travellers that there is no compulsory quarantine for people arriving in the country from other EU countries or the UK, and that all shops, restaurants and bars are open.
It also says that public spaces, such as gardens and beaches, are welcoming visitors provided that social distancing can be maintained.
