Following the proposal of the Commission on 4 September, today’s agreement will provide “more clarity and predictability for citizens with a common map and colour code based on common criteria.”

Member States should also provide citizens with clear and timely information about what they must do, and which restrictions are in force.

All the information about travelling in the EU will be available on the ‘Re-open EU’ platform, where the common map published regularly by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control will also be cross-referenced.
