Summer vacation 2020 from June 15th: Travel warning should be lifted

Are you tired of vacationing on the Baltic or North Sea? You don’t want to spend the whole summer on balconies? Then there is good news for you. Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) now wants to gradually lift the travel warning, which is still valid until June 14.

On Monday, he agreed with his colleagues from ten of Germany’s most popular holiday destinations to work towards opening the borders to tourists by the beginning of summer. A video conference was about how the border controls and quarantine rules ordered due to the corona pandemic can be lifted and how the necessary hygiene at the holiday locations can be guaranteed.

After the meeting, Maas announced that the travel warning for German tourists, which is still valid worldwide until June 14, will initially only be lifted for the European Union and replaced by individual travel advice for the individual countries. The Federal Foreign Office is also already thinking about lifting the travel warning for individual countries outside the EU. Germany wants to open the borders again at least for its neighboring countries by June 15 – only in the Czech Republic and Poland is it unclear when an agreement can be reached.

The next step is to lift the two-week quarantine requirement for foreigners who still apply in many countries. Because even with “All inclusive” and 24-hour room service, a vacation in a hotel room is no fun. If this is regulated, the worldwide travel warning should also fall from June 15.

“We want to return to normalization step by step,” said Maas. But he also emphasized that summer vacation will not be the same as before the Corona crisis. “We shouldn’t be under the illusion that there can be a quick return to business as usual.”

Here you can see which six popular travel destinations are surprisingly good and which four other popular travel destinations are jiggling:
