The Countries That Are Welcoming Back Tourists This Summer

Published

on

The entire world has been on self-isolation mood in light of the COVID-19 outbreak and even though, traveling seems to be off the table, some countries are actually planning on opening their borders soon.

A number of countries are getting ready to welcome back tourists this summer and allow their citizens to return home. Let’s not forget that for some countries, tourism is their main source of economical revenue.

What follows are the countries planning on opening their borders soon, but with all the necessary precautions.

Switzerland

The Swiss Federal Council on its meeting on Friday, June 5, has supported a decision for citizens of all European Union Member states including Britons, as well as citizens of the Schengen Associated Countries to be permitted enter the country as of June 15.

Austria

Vienna also gave June 15 as the official date for reopening the country’s inter-EU borders. Austria has already opened its border to some traffic from Germany on May 15.

Greece

Greece will welcome international tourists from nearly 30 countries back in June, but will retain a ban on holidaymakers from countries with high Covid-19 infection rates like the United States, the Greek government announced.

Italy

Surprisingly, Europe’s first country to seriously face the outbreak has never technically ordered its borders closed, the extreme measures put in place at airports to stop the spread of the virus and border closures ordered by its neighbors have pretty much cut it off to international travel.

Starting on June 3, citizens of EU countries will once again be allowed to travel to Italy. Curbs on inter-regional travel within Italy will also be lifted in early June.

Mexico

Mexico will start welcoming back tourists starting this June. However, it will only be welcoming tourists to areas of the country that aren’t still in the midst of a serious coronavirus outbreak.

Turkey

Turkey said that it will resume reciprocal flights with at least 15 countries this month, but will only accept certain nationalities.

Spain

“In July we will gradually open Spain to international tourists, lift the quarantine, ensure the highest standards of health safety. We look forward 2 welcoming you!” Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya tweeted.

We honestly can’t wait for things to go back to normal but one question remains, with border opening up, will tourists and travelers find it in themselves to travel amidst a pandemic?

God knows we can’t wait for airports to open again, but one must still be very careful.

Major General Atef Moftah, General Supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), received on behalf of the museum two ISO certificates: a certificate of accreditation of international standards for environmental management systems (ISO 14001: 2015) and certification of the international standard specifications for the quality management systems (ISO9001: 2015).

File: The three ISO certificates received by GEM.

Engineer Mohamed Habib, General Manager of OSS Middle East and Dr. Tarek Rizk, consultant of OSS Middle East and witnessed by Dr. Hussein Kamal, were the ones to present the certificated in the presence of General Director of the GEM Conservation Center, Dr. Eissa Zidan, Director of Executive Affairs of GEM Conservation and Transportation, and Dr. Elshimaa Eid, Head of Health and Safety at GEM.

This brings the total of certificated that the museum has been awarded to three, as the museum obtained the ISO certificate for occupational safety and health last September.

It’s also worth mentioning that this makes the GEM the only museum regionally and internationally to obtain three ISO certificates in less than 60 days!

These certificates resemble the positive impact that the museum have on the area and its surroundings, it also positions the museum as a sustainable and environmental museum.
