The Latest on Quarantine Free Travel

Nomad Life

As the fight to control the corona virus rages, here at Bob we have always had our guests safety at the very forefront of what we do. Our ridiculously clean standard was just one way we quickly made our apartments even more secure during the pandemic.

As quarantine free travel becomes possible for some, we wanted to provide more clarity on the current situation.

From today (September 14) travellers from most European countries will have to quarantine for two weeks on arrival to Estonia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday. Norway was added to the list this week. Travel to and from Finland however is completely free of restrictions or periods quarantine.

Last week Estonia increased the coronavirus case rate ceiling for travellers arriving from Finland and the Baltics, as did Finland and Lithuania, easing travel opportunities for the neighboring countries. Latvia has decided to stay out of the "travel bubble" for now, keeping its limit at 16 per 100,000, but does not rule out changes in the future.

Below is a list of countries and their infection rates. Countries above 16 are in bold.

  • Andorra 266.5
  • Austria 59.7
  • Belgium 47.1
  • Bulgaria 24.1
  • Spain 265.5
