France plans to reopen its borders to other Schengen countries from 15 June when the health situation permits. If you travel to France within Europe, you should not be quarantined from then on, unless you come from a country that has quarantine rules for French tourists.

Hotels have been open in France since 2 June and the campsites are also allowed to receive guests again, except in the Paris region. As in most European countries, the border Open. Some other countries may follow on July 1, the European Commission says.

Greece hopes that the tourist season can start on July 1 in fairly normal circumstances. Anyone currently leaving for Greece must, in addition to a mandatory corona test, also have to be quarantined for 14 days, except travelers who are in transit.
