Coronavirus, from 15 June, reopens its borders in Europe and we return to travel more freely between the Member States: the details.
After the peak of Covid, the borders in Europe reopen. Most Member States, in fact, from 15 June give the green light to travel freely from one state to another. Some countries, however, have decided not to loosen the restrictions that are still in place.
Covid, Europe’s borders reopen
From 15 June it will be possible to travel between most European countries. The EU and Shengen countries are reopening their borders. You can travel to and from the UK, Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland without restrictions and without quarantine; the same applies to Germany, which has withdrawn restrictions for EU travellers. The only people to be checked once they arrive at the country of arrival are the Spaniards.
They open their borders in France; quarantine requirement only for those arriving from Spain or the United Kingdom. Belgium and the Netherlands reopen their borders without any restrictions or quarantine requirements. The Czech Republic, which until now had only opened to Germany, Austria and Slovakia, also reopens its borders.
Greece is the country with the highest number of openings at the moment: the borders are open not only for member countries, but also for non-European states, such as Australia, China and South Korea; Italy is excluded. By the end of the month, however, restrictions will also fall for those from the Peninsula.
Spain, which has decided to open its borders since 21 June, with the exception of the border with Portugal, which will reopen on 1 July, is left behind. Diametrically opposed, as always, the approach of Sweden, which has never adopted any restrictions for travel in and out of the country.
