OK well not everywhere yet…

While many of the European governments badly want you to come and visit and are jumping through hoops to make it appear you can travel safely there. There are still many unknowns that need to be answered. Is the local government offering a clear indication of where you can travel? Many of the provinces or states within a country are still experiencing high levels of COVID-19 outbreaks. And while the map below has turned from Red to Orange in the last 3 weeks, the US State Department is still warning of danger in the European area. While you may be able to travel to these countries the State Department has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for most of Europe due to COVID-19, indicating a high level of COVID-19 in that country.

State Department Advisory For Each Country

This map has turned to Orange from Red for most of Europe in last 3 weeks – that is a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for most of Europe due to COVID-19, indicating a high level of COVID-19 in the country. What they are saying is “Travel Advisory Level = Reconsider Travel”

So this all spells confusion. Sure you may be vaccinated but can you prove that to a European border guard and customs officials in such a way as they want and does our own state department agree that is is safe to travel to your desired destination.

The situation is getting better and it looks like by August we should be all clear. If you want to discuss your plans in more detail please use the links below to contact us.
