The strengthening of covid restrictions in many EU countries leaves no hope for the early opening of borders for tourists from non-EU countries, including Russia. The lockdown in the Czech Republic is tightening, the situation in some regions of Italy and France is not much better. And even in Sweden, which was previously liberal with regard to antiquarian measures, the opening hours of restaurants and cafes are being reduced, and the observance of social distancing will be stricterly monitored. Details are in the review.
Meanwhile, Europe is not abandoning the idea of electronic vaccination certificates. The bill on the introduction of “green digital passports” is planned to be presented in March.
