Mexico is looking at opening to international travellers relatively soon. “The plan for the country is to open in stages and by regions,” said World Travel & Tourism Council CEO Gloria Guevara. “The target is domestic travellers first, followed by travellers from the US and Canada and then the rest of the world.”
In Turkey, international visitors are likely to be able to enter the country again in mid-June, and during an interview, Turkish Tourism Minister Mehmet Nuri Ersoy suggested that the country may first reopen to Asian countries such as China and South Korea.
Over in Russia, it seems that international air travel to and from 15 countries is likely to resume on 15 July. Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, has reportedly outlined that it plans to open to China, South Korea, Turkey and some European countries where the number of Covid-19 cases has considerably decreased – although this arrangement would be dependent on the respective countries agreeing to accept flights from Russia.
Elsewhere, the Indonesian Ministry of Transport has projected that Bali could welcome international visitors by October of this year. However, the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy has asserted that in order to reopen the tourism sector, the country would need to apply standard procedures in public facilities that are aimed at ensuring the public can adhere to health protocols in the sector.
