The Minister for Tourism discussed the recovery and lifting of travel restrictions with ministers from several European countries and the European Commission at the recent Extraordinary G20 Tourism Ministers’ Meeting on COVID-19. We will work closely with foreign governments to help the global tourism industry recover from the current crisis.

Officials in my Department are also in regular contact with the OECD and World Travel and Tourism Council. We continue to share information about the UK’s response to COVID-19.
