Travel without COVID restrictions

More and more countries are opening their borders to tourists. UN World Travel Organisation (UNWTO) data shows a 64 per cent jump in international arrivals in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 2021. Top officials of the UN agency had their first in-person meeting on June 15, 2022 in Maldives, where they shared the good news.
