Gradually, countries are starting to create regional “travel bubbles”: learn about 7 international destinations that intend to reopen for tourists in June
After the coronavirus pandemic caused the border lockdown and a large damage to tourism around the world, some countries are slowly starting to reopen to visitors.
Opening plans and travel strategies, however, are slow and prioritize “travel bubbles”, that is, visitors from nearby regions or countries. At this rate and in the face of many changes, some places are preparing to reopen for tourists with restrictions.
Check out, below, 7 destinations that intend to reopen for tourists in June.
THE Iceland is another destination that should open its borders in June for tourists. However, as in other cases, slowly and with restrictions. The country's prime minister, Katrin Jakobsdottir, announced that it is possible that the destination will be ready to receive people by June 15.
The idea is to offer free COVID-19 tests on arrival at the airport – tourists who test negative will be free to enjoy their time in the country, but those who test positive will have to self-isolate for 14 days.
Mexico (Cancun, Tulum and Riviera Maya)
Some of Mexico's most popular destinations, such as cancun, Tulum and Riviera Maya, intend to receive international travelers in early June. According to the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Office, the moment coincides with the date on which the U.S and Canada must return their services to the Mexican Caribbean. However, tourists and attractions must follow a series of hygiene protocols and recommendations.
For this, the country is developing a campaign as a way of promoting local tourism and also informing about the changes. According to the Mercado & Eventos magazine, director Dario Flota believes that the first wave of tourists will arrive for conventions and weddings.
Last Monday (18th), the Italian government started a reopening of its museums and some attractions. This was the beginning of relaxation measures taking place in the country. The idea now is to resume tourism only for European Union citizens from June 3, as well as free movement between regions of the country.
Calls with countries outside Europe remain prohibited until at least June 15th. It is expected that other European countries will also reopen for tourism on the same dates, but nothing has been confirmed so far.
Saint Lucia and Aruba (Caribbean)
Some famous Caribbean destinations will also start to open to tourists in June. This is the case of Saint Lucia, a tropical island located in the eastern Caribbean, which announced a progressive opening to tourists starting on June 4th. To access the site, visitors must present a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival. A temperature measurement will also be carried out at the airport, hotels and restaurants. In addition, masks will be required.
Another popular Caribbean destination filled with idyllic scenery, Aruba announced that it will begin welcoming visitors between June 15th and July 1st. According to the website panrotas, the Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) and the Department of Public Health announced an 'Aruba Health and Happiness Code', a mandatory cleanliness and hygiene certification program for all companies in the sector. The official announcement should be made soon.
Spain also reopens the country gradually. The beaches of Barcelona have been open for ten days for sports in the morning, but today (the 20th) they are open to regulars.
According to Reuters, José Luis Ábalos, Spain's Transport Minister, said he expected tourists to return to the country from the end of June. However, nothing official has been declared so far.
Last week, according to the Veja magazine, Madrid imposed a mandatory two-week quarantine on all foreign travelers and said it would keep borders closed until travel within Spain itself was allowed.
Greece has been progressively reopening the country since May 4th. Last weekend, the government authorized the opening of some attractions and beaches, which had been closed since March 23.
For this, some measures were taken. According to the newspaper The Guardian, no more than 40 people are allowed per thousand square meters and the umbrellas, in addition to being constantly disinfected, must be four meters apart.
In addition, the country is already open to Britons. According to the Daily Mail, visitors will be able to stay in the country without the need for isolation. 14 Airlines have also started selling tickets for June.
