Latest travel news and updates from around the world
On Thursday, Germany has cautiously reopened its borders to travelers travelling from outside the European Union. With the prediction that Europe may be on the cusp of a second wave of the global COVID-19 pandemic Berlin has re-issued warnings for places inside Europe when the infections were rising above 50 cases per 100,000 people in over a week. By lifting its blanket warning, it could bring about a positive change for non-European tourist spots that welcome large number of German tourists and visitors.
In the coming future, the standard of 50 cases per 100,000 people in a week will be applied in lifting all kinds of travel restrictions all over the world. If the current rate of the virus is below this threshold, Germans can return home without having to quarantine themselves after a negative test. At the moment, only parts of Europe and Georgia allow entry and exit without any kind of restrictions.
