It will be possible for citizens and residents of Estonia to travel also to Austria without restrictions starting from Tuesday.

Starting from Monday, valid restrictions on movement changed in several member states of the EU or the Schengen convention, spokespeople for the foreign ministry said.

The lifting of restrictions by Austria will raise to 17 the number of European countries that Estonian citizens can travel to without restrictions.

As at Monday, Estonian citizens can travel without restrictions to Finland, Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, Germany and France, the ministry said. 

Those traveling to the U.K. or Ireland are required to self-quarantine in the country of stay.

Under certain conditions, such as when producing a health certificate, Estonian citizens can travel also to Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Czechia, Hungary, Iceland, Cyprus and Romania.  

Restrictions concerning entry into third countries continue to apply, as will restrictions on entry into Estonia from non-EU countries at least until June 30. 

Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu (Isamaa) said that due to the continued spread of coronavirus a general warning concerning international travel is in effect and one should reconsider traveling to foreign countries without urgent need.

"When in a foreign country, people must definitely observe the instructions of local authorities and make sure that they comply with visa conditions and other conditions for stay in that country," Reinsalu said.
