Are the borders of the countries of the world open during the COVID-19 pandemic?
The states of Europe and the world are introducing new rules regarding border crossing in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Travelling around the world during COVID-19 is regulated by the legislation of a particular state. Among the main documents required for crossing the border is a medical passport (international certificate), confirming the absence of coronavirus. Also, some countries have introduced digital vaccination certificates. At the moment, these are 7 countries of the European Union, namely: Denmark, Germany, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Poland and Croatia. It is planned that the certificate will be simultaneously presented both on paper and in digital format (that is, in the form of a QR code). The presence of such a digital certificate is proof that a person crossing the border by car or plane is not dangerous from the point of view of the spread of COVID-19.
To stop the active spread of the coronavirus, many countries in Europe and the world have fully or partially closed their borders to tourists.
To the question: are the borders open, the answer is affirmative today.
Peculiarities of crossing the borders of the countries of Europe and the world
The European Commission proposes to weaken the criteria that determine countries with a favorable situation in terms of the rate of spread of COVID-19. The main condition is that in the last 2 weeks the number of new cases should not exceed 25 new cases per 100 thousand of the population. In addition, the decrease or increase in new cases, the total number of tests performed, as well as the proportion of positive tests are of great importance.
Many European countries open borders for EU residents and vaccinated citizens.
Also, departure is allowed for citizens from the so-called "third countries". In this case, the conditions for crossing the border are regulated by vaccination against COVID-19. Travel is allowed for citizens who have been vaccinated with one of the vaccines approved by the EMA - the European Medicines Agency.
Travelling with us is easy!
The coronavirus pandemic has changed the world forever. And if in 2020 the borders of most countries were closed to non-citizens: tourists, students, etc. With the help of the covidcrossborders.com service, you can track current travel destinations, as well as border crossing conditions.
For example, recently, most carriers have introduced flexible rules for transferring and cancelling flight bookings. In addition, large air hubs are deliberately closing some of the terminals to provide more effective security measures in the context of COVID-19.
Also, the conditions of social distancing are strictly observed everywhere.
As far as possible, airlines change seating arrangements for passengers in aircraft cabins. There is also a self-check-in service instead of the usual check-in at the counters.
Everything is for your safe travel! The coronavirus pandemic is not a reason to give up tourism and stop communicating with family and friends (even if you are hundreds of thousands of kilometers apart).
