Information about the opening of European borders

Plans are already underway to revive Europe’s tourism industry starting in June. While not all countries have set specific dates, we have good news for anyone interested in investing in Europe in one of our projects. The borders of countries including Spain, Greece, and Portugal will soon open, and we are here to tell you how.

The EU will implement a three-phase border reopening plan in June:

  • The first phase focuses on domestic travel, easing restrictions on travel within each country.
  • Cross-border travel, restricted to Europe, will start in the second phase as consumer confidence recovers after the coronavirus health crisis and restrictions on movement are lifted.
  • We would enter the third phase, which involves international tourism, after domestic and then regional travel open.

Which leads us to underscore that, even though an exact date has not been set, at least we now have a month as a point of reference: July. This is when the Spanish Government calculates that Spanish borders will open to foreign tourists and international investors, without a compulsory 14-day quarantine.

On the other hand, Portugal is preparing for the possible opening of its borders to tourists around 15 June, a week after its beaches open on June 6, implementing all the measures necessary to ensure that social distancing is respected.

Greece is going to open the airports to foreign visitors starting on 15 June, with no quarantine required, although certain safety measures (like random health screening for coronavirus) will be in place. But only citizens coming from Albania, Australia, Austria, North Macedonia, Bulgaria, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Estonia, Japan, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Finland, Czech republic will be able to enter, from 15 June.

Travelling around Europe

If everything goes according to the plan, international investors will have no problem to travel to these countries, this means that they could carry on with their inversions visiting Spain, Portugal and Greece, with no restriction from the authorities.

However, and as we have said in other occasions, and if you prefer it, you can apply and carry on your investments without leaving your country.  Our team will manage everything so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Contact us!
