The EU Created an App to Explain Travel Restrictions by Country

by Eben Diskin Jun 19, 2020

Keeping up with the current rules regarding travel can feel like an impossible and overwhelming task. Even though many EU countries are slowly easing their travel restrictions, figuring out where you can go, when, and what you can do there, is still a headache. A new app, developed by the European Union, aims to make it easier, giving travelers the most up-to-date information on each country’s reopening.

The app, called Re-open EU, will give travelers real-time information about Covid-19 restrictions in each of the European Union’s 27 member countries. The app has updates about border rules, health and safety measures, any health certificate requirements, and what services, beaches, shops, museums, and restaurants will be open upon arrival.

According to the app’s website, “This interactive tool provides you with the information that you need to confidently plan your European travel and holidays, while staying healthy and safe. The information is frequently updated and available in 24 languages for your convenience.”

The app is available on both iPhone or Android platforms or via the EU website. Re-open EU is part of the Commission’s Tourism and Transport package, launched to rebuild confidence among travelers in the midst of the pandemic.
