Jorrit Rijpma on BNR radio about the call for European travel guidelines
On 30 July, Jorrit Rijpma spoke on Dutch BNR news radio programme Spitsuur about the call from ANVR, the Dutch travel sector organisation, for European travel guidelines to be provided.
Rijpma explained that while the Commission does in principle have the authority to submit a legislative proposal on this, it is unlikely that the Member States would quickly come to some kind of agreement. He pointed out that the European Union is currently trying to coordinate the different national measures. A website has also been launched that indicates the situation for travellers in each Member State: https://reopen.europa.eu/en/
