Germany open borders

With more and more countries in the EU deciding to reopen their borders, the return to normalcy seems to be picking pace in Europe.

Germany is planning to reopen its borders to the people belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland on 15th June 2020. This is considering the consistent improvement in the COVID-19 related situation showing no signs of a relapse. So, for Germany migration is all set to pick up pace in the coming days.

The new decision will allow nationals of all the other 26 EU member states to enter Germany for non-essential purposes. Others who will get the same benefit include citizens of the UK, non-EU Schengen member states, Norway, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein.

Between May 15 and 16, Germany had already lifted border controls with Luxembourg. This was a result of the decision of Horst Seehofer, the German Minister of Interior. His decisions are behind ending the border controls with Austria, Switzerland, and France on June 15, 2020. It was also decided to open airside borders with Spain and Italy.

In the last few days, many EU and Schengen member states have come out with the decision to reopen their borders. This will initially be to their fellow member states, allowing non-essential entry.

Among other countries that recently decided to reopen their borders, the most recent are Denmark and Norway. They have decided to let their citizens to cross over to each other’s borders, from June 15, 2020. The prospects of tourism and travel between these two Nordic nations will thus revive by mid-June this year.
