The European Commission has launched a website where travellers to the European Union can check the conditions in the country they are heading to. The data is supposed to be constantly updated and submitted by EU countries.
The site allows you to check the restrictions on travel with different vehicles, as well as the conditions for stay or transit. Most EU countries have lifted restrictions imposed for travel across internal borders because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The site says that protecting public health is a high priority for the European Union. But they still want people to be able to enjoy their holidays, reunite with friends and family and to be able to travel both for business or pleasure. They want to provide you with the information you would need to plan a trip, while still staying safe and healthy. What is more, the information is updated regularly and is available in 24 languages. All you need to do is select your destination and that’s it. You have 4 main tabs at your disposal – Information, Travel, Services and Health and Safety. Each of them provides important information on the needed topic. The site can be found here. However, we recommend to check out the Ministry of Foreign Affairs site of the country you will be travelling to for additional info or any changes that might have occurred. Do your research diligently.
