European countries open to tourism 2021
On March 14, 2022, the presentation of the vaccination passport in those places where it was required (leisure and cultural centers, commercial catering, trade fairs and professional shows, etc.) ceased to be mandatory. Similarly, the health passport ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the health control system has made it possible to preserve our health system and to delay the arrival on French territory of variants with worrying characteristics. This system ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
However, in the event of the emergence of a dangerous variant, the entry into French territory of travelers from countries considered to be at risk could again be subject to the presentation of a negative virological test.
For information on health regulations concerning entry into the territory of other countries, please consult the Travel Advice section of the website of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.

By the end of 2022, foreign visitors from visa-exempt countries will have to register for the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) to access the Schengen zone. It will have a maximum duration of 90 days and is aimed at improving border security.
The Schengen area was created in 1995 and is a group of countries that abolished immigration controls at their common borders, so in terms of external borders, they are governed by common rules and operate as one country.
The ETIAS permit will be mandatory for citizens of Latin American countries who traditionally could access the Schengen area without a visa for short stays related to tourism and business.
Before applying for the permit, it is important that you have a valid passport, a debit or credit card to pay for the ETIAS application, internet connection, and an email address where you will receive the document when it is approved.
First trip to Europe: 10 basics
To curb the spread of the coronavirus and protect the health and well-being of all Europeans, it has been necessary to impose some travel restrictions. The European Commission is doing everything possible to allow people to meet friends and family and travel for work purposes, as well as to ensure the free movement of citizens, goods and services, in full compliance with health and safety measures.
The exchange of data between Member States’ contact-tracing authorities can be particularly important in situations of close proximity in cross-border travel, such as on planes or trains.
