Finally, the long-awaited “summer like back then” is just around the corner. The current infection situation in most European countries is much better than predicted. Here you can find out the basic information so that nothing stands in the way of a safe summer holiday.

What about the EU-wide Green Passport?

Later than expected, but still, in time before the start of the main holiday season in Europe, the EU has finally been able to push ahead and almost finalize the realization of the Green Pass. As of July 1, the Europe-wide Digital COVID Certificate – i.e. the Green Passport – is to replace all national versions.

What do I have to do if I want to travel abroad?

Long border controls and time-consuming paperwork are to become a thing of the past with the introduction of the Green Passport. A Europe with closed borders in the heart of the Union, as we have experienced to some extent since the outbreak of the pandemic, should be avoided as far as possible. The Green Passport can be obtained if one of the following three conditions is met:

  • Vaccinated
  • Recovered
  • Tested

Where can I get the best info about my travel destination?

As we wrote in our first blog post, the EU always tries to gather all the info on the website Re-open EU. A map with all EU countries gives a direct overview of the current infection situation. However, the latest feature of the website is especially helpful for those planning a trip. One can either directly select the destination country or even a travel plan from the “departure country” to the “destination country”. After clicking on “continue” one gets directly the most important information as well as the national links.
