For much of Europe, reopening day is here
By Emily Palmer
As the world slowly reopens to tourism, Monday — or, in some cases, Tuesday — has emerged as a significant day, especially in Europe, where the European Union plans to lift many internal borders. Additional waves of reopenings are expected later in the summer, but for now, visitors from the United States aren’t typically on the invite list.
Some European countries, including Greece, Croatia and Portugal, have started reaching out to tourists, as have a few Caribbean island nations, including St. Lucia.
In other regions, the pace is slower. Tourism remains banned across much of the African continent, as it is in many parts of South America.
