Here at Haute Retreats we’re focusing on the meaningful vacations to dream about—and book for the future–even though things won’t look the same, we’re updating the destinations that it is possible to travel in June.
From Italy to Mexico, countries around the world are slowly lifting their lockdowns trying to enter this new normal, getting close as possible to what our lives where during the pre-pandemic.
Despite there are many countries that still are discouraging nonessential travel, there tourism-reliant economies around the world that are planning to reopen doors to travellers as soon as possible
Italy has reopened its borders to international tourists without any quarantine rules-
Italy was home to one of Europe’s deadliest coronavirus outbreaks and also experienced the longest lockdown the continent had, Italians self-isolated at home from March 10th to May 4th.
Starting June 3rd Italy allows tourists to travel in and out of it, without having to quarantine.
Cancun, Tulum, and Riviera Maya hope to be back in business by June 8-10.
Cancun, Tulum, and Riviera Maya aim to welcome international travellers by June 8-10 2020 according to Mexico News Daily.
The tourism board or Quintana Roo told Riviera Maya News that this reopening will be at the same time of the resumption of flights from the US, Canada and Europe to the area implementing new hygiene protocols. According to Travel + Leisure, Los Cabos similarly announced a phased reopening plan, which includes putting in place a “Clean Point” quality certification for cleaning measures that hotels, restaurants, and tour providers must obtain. Phase 1, which started June 1, allows for limited travel while these new health and safety protocols are enforced, while phase 2, which is the opening of the airport’s international terminal, is targeted for July.
Greece, which emerged from the pandemic relatively unscathed, hopes to welcome visitors by mid-June.
Greece started its lockdown early, and had relatively low number of coronavirus cases and related deaths. Greece had a very low number of deaths 180 total according to Johns Hopkins. Many of the businesses in Greece opened in May and starting June 1st many hotels reopened, tourists are invited to travel into the country starting mid-June.
According to a previous article by Business Insider, Greece’s prime minister added that COVID-19 testing will be in place at airports, and temperature checks will be implemented in hotels and restaurants.
France is aiming to lift the restrictions on June 15th 2020
France is to decide on the reopening of European borders on June 15, and is calling for a coordinated approach, as Italy reopens, but the UK doubles down on quarantine. We look at what this means for France.
France began phase two of deconfinement on Tuesday June 2, and both President Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister Edouard Philippe have been clear that holidays within France will almost certainly be permitted this summer.
Beaches, parks, forests, holiday accommodation, monuments and museums have all reopened – or will have done so – by the end of June. The 100km travel limit has also been lifted.
Croatia has reopened to tourists from these countries
As of June 2020, Croatia has now reopened to tourists, first by allowing in visitors from countries within the European Union.
“We have always been recognisable because of the safety and nature in Croatia. Now it turns out that safety is once again Croatia’s strongest trump card for this season and I believe that’s the main reason for the arrivals. Croatia managed to defend itself from that plague and to organise itself very well.” Said Cappelli
The 10 EU countries that are exempt from the valid reservation requirement are:
- Czech Republic
All other EU countries that wish to visit Croatia must show proof of hotel or other travel-based reservation within the country and a valid reason to enter.
At this time Croatia has not announced a date when other counries (like the USA, UK and Canada) might be able to visit. We will keep checking and updating this article when news/dates are released.
