The Entry Requirements in Europe – Travel Advice

0

Most countries have reopened their borders to international tourism. The Department of Health has issued COVID-19 Traveler Information and advises all citizens to read the country-specific Travel Advisories and consult their embassy for updates on the impact of COVID-19 worldwide. An open country means you can arrive, however we recommend checking the status of travellers on return to your home or country of residency as quarantine may happen depending where you will be traveling.

The following article will give you a global overview of the travel requirements by country.
