    The EU’s tourism sector has been severely hit by the COVID-19 crisis. It posted an investment shortfall of EUR 161 billion in 2020, with adverse consequences spreading across the entire tourism ecosystem, especially for the 27 million workers employed directly and indirectly by the tourism sector.

    As the 2021 summer season ends, it is time to make a preliminary assessment of the measures in place allowing for a coordinated EU approach towards the safe reopening of travel within the Union, as well as to and from non-EU countries: firstly, the implementation of the EU Digital COVID Certificate, with the aim of facilitating lifting restrictions on travel and forestalling unilateral actions by individual Member-States, and secondly, the creation of the European Tourism COVID-19 Safety Seal.
