In focus

Border Crossing Restrictions

International movement and connectivity are facing unprecedented challenges as an increasing number of countries around the world close their borders and impose travel restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To facilitate the work of transport operators and keep supply chains working as smoothly as possible, UNECE is launching an “Observatory on Border Crossings Status due to COVID-19” which gathers all updated information regarding border crossing limitations worldwide. See also how TIR keeps the borders open.

In addition, with a need to track these unprecedented short-term impacts, timely statistics are crucial. Thus UNECE has also produced a wiki on relevant short-term transport statistics, arranged by country and topic.
