The German government wants to lift the negative travel advice for 31 European countries from June 15 if the further development of the coronavirus allows this.
In addition to all 26 EU countries, including Great Britain, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Lichtenstein.
This is evident from documents held by the DPA news agency about which the government will decide on Wednesday.
Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) issued a worldwide travel warning on March 17 due to the lung virus. This generally useful travel advice should be exchanged for advice that shows the risks per country.
In order to provide tourists with the best possible protection against a corona infection, the government of Angela Merkel wants to work on establishing several standard criteria in consultation with the European Union.
The lifting of the travel warning should kick-start cross-border tourism in Europe.
The plan states that “the resurgence of tourism is important for travellers and the German travel industry, as well as for economic stability in the countries they visit.”
