The report noted that 100 percent of all destinations worldwide continue to have some form of Covid-19-related travel restrictions in place
The World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) said though the world is slowly opening up again with destinations cautiously easing travel restrictions introduced in response to Covid-19, the caution still remains.
According to UNWTO, three percent of all global destinations have now taken steps to ease travel restrictions.
UNWTO has been monitoring the global response to Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic.
In a new report named "Covid-19 Related Travel Restrictions: A Global Review for Tourism report", the organisation looked at the measures of 217 destinations worldwide as of 18th May.
The research shows that seven destinations have eased travel restrictions for international tourism purposes.
At the same time, several more destinations are engaged in significant discussions about the re-opening of borders.
The report noted that 100 percent of all destinations worldwide continue to have some form of Covid-19-related travel restrictions in place.
Furthermore, as of 18 May, still, 75 percent of destinations continued to have their borders completely closed for international tourism.
In 37 percent of all cases, travel restrictions have been in place for 10 weeks, while 24 percent of global destinations have had restrictions in place for 14 weeks or more.
UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili said, "The timely and responsible easing of travel restrictions will help ensure the many social and economic benefits that tourism guarantees will return in a sustainable way."
"This will contribute to the livelihoods of many millions of people around the world. The sector is a driver of sustainable development and a pillar of economies," he added.
