Amidst the gloomy clouds of COVID-19, there is a ray of hope to be seen for the travellers as some European countries plan to lift travel ban for couples. Since March, European countries have closed their borders to non-citizens, owing to the pandemic. But now, the European Commission has asked the members to open their borders for couples who are separated by the borders. However, the requirements will vary from country to country.
Denmark is a beautiful Scandinavian country in Northern Europe which attracts tourists from every corner of the world. The country has permitted entry for the spouse, live-in partner, or fiancé of a Danish national citizen. However, if you aren’t a citizen of an EU country, you will have to show the reports of negative COVID-19 test. The test should be taken not more than 72 hours before.
If you want to meet your unmarried partner in Norway, all you need to do is to fill up a form on entry. You need to mention the name and address of both partners. You will also have to sign a declaration that your relationship lasted for at least nine months.
There is an extensive list of requirements for unmarried couples provided by the Dutch government. If the partner is not a citizen, then he or she can visit the country for a maximum of 90 days. The relationship should last for at least 3 months.
Couples need to submit documents and declaration of their relationship. Documents related to a joint lease, joint bank account, etc. need to be submitted.
Exemption from the travel restrictions will be given to the partners of the Icelandic citizens on submitting a confirmation and the documents supporting the statement.
Proof of various visits, passport stamps, airline tickets, and travel documents should be submitted by unmarried couples. Additionally, an invitation from the German partner should also be produced along with a declaration stating the relationship of the couple.
The most beautiful European country, Switzerland has opened tourism for couples. However, you need to provide proof of your relationship with your partner. Another thing to be kept in mind is that people from high-risk countries will have to undergo a quarantine period.
Austria has permitted entry for only “life partners” regardless of the duration of the relationship.
Finland has also lifted travel restrictions for the couples. According to the officials, visitors entering the country on the basis of a relationship, are also considered persons travelling for family matters.
France is the latest country that has lifted the travel ban in Europe. A specific system is being created for life partners separated by borders.
