Travellers have been desperately waiting for 2020 to be over so that they can begin the new year with travelling adventures.
While 2020 was a no show for tourists, they are totally ready to explore 2021. So far, this year has proven quite good for the tourism industry.
Things are going back to normal, and travellers are coming up with some new trends. It looks like this year will be a revolution for the travelling industry. A temporary ban on irrelevant travel to and from Belgium came into force today. Travel in road, air, sea and rail traffic is subject to the ban, which should be in place by March 1. The Belgian national authorities emphasize that the decision to ban all unimportant travel was made in order to stop the spread of new strains of coronavirus. All passengers who fall under the category of “compulsory travel” will have to submit an “affidavit” relating to the purpose of their trip and attach the relevant documents. Serbia removed from the “red list” of risky countries: Mandatory quarantine is abolished All passengers from the United Kingdom, South Africa and South America who come to Belgium must go directly to quarantine for ten days and be tested twice for kovid 19. Norway will close its borders at midnight on Friday for all passengers whose arrival is not necessary, Prime Minister Erna Solberg said today. She said at the press conference that the border will be closed for everyone who does not live in Norway. She specified that there will be exceptions, such as medical workers from certain countries, but she added that most moguls will not be able to enter the country, Reuters reports. Norway, which is not a member of the EU, introduced a lockdown in the region around the capital Oslo on Saturday, The director of the National Association of Tourist Agencies of Serbia (YUTA), Aleksandar Senicic, says that it is not yet known according to which rules and conditions he will travel abroad in the future, but that due to the next tourist season they should be known by the end of March or beginning of April. According to him, it now seems certain that the vaccine received will be an advantage, but not a condition for being able to travel to other countries. Because, as he says, some people simply do not want to receive the vaccine, while others are not allowed to, and other rules will apply to them, such as a negative PCR or a quick antigen test.after the outbreak of the British variant of the coronavirus appeared. Senicic estimates that the possession of a health certificate for crossing the border, which is increasingly mentioned, is a logical sequence of events and that it was already a topic at the meeting of the leaders of the European Union members. “They rejected the idea of introducing a covid-passport and its introduction should not be expected, after all, the World Health Organization is against such a solution. It is more likely that it will be a certificate or a vaccination certificate where you can read through the CU code necessary data “, states Seničić. He emphasizes that it is very important to regulate it at the level of the European Union and make a decision there on a single document and what it should look like. Senicic points out that the complete nonsense is the fear that the type of vaccine that is received could be an obstacle to entering one of the countries, usually referring to the Chinese or Russian vaccine. “It is completely meaningless. It is known that Russian and Chinese tourists are among the most numerous tourists. They will certainly receive vaccines from their countries and it is not logical to expect someone to refuse so many people and not allow them to enter the country just because of the vaccine,” he said. Senicic. That is why, he points out, it is completely unfounded to think that the type of vaccine can be a problem
