Can I see all European Covid travel rules in one place?

There are various different travel rules relating to the pandemic all around Europe

An EU website has details of all Covid-related restrictions in each country

Reader question: I know that travel is very restricted right now, but I was wondering if there was anywhere that I could see all these rules in one place? It is complicated to go searching country by country

There is one website that responds exactly to this reader’s needs.

Reopen.europe.eu has all the latest information on travel restrictions around the 27 EU countries. It is laid out clearly on a map so that users can click on whichever country they would like and see what rules are in place there. 

The restrictions, including aspects as to whether PCR tests are needed for entry, if there are local curfews or lockdowns, etc. are updated regularly. 

The website is available in various different European languages, including English and French.

Currently travel from France to other countries, inside and outside of the EU, is “strictly unadvised until further notice”, the government has stated. 

There are some exceptions to this, which can be found in our article here or on the government’s website here

Travel within France is still permitted, with regional borders remaining open. 

In Nice holiday rentals have been banned during the February holidays, which run from February 6 to 20.
