This brief outlines policy recommendations for safely reopening travel and tourism in Asia and the Pacific while prioritizing response, recovery, and resiliency during phases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

Restarting travel and tourism in the region must consider the entire ecosystem—from aviation to small and medium-sized enterprises—and requires greater focus on health and safety. In this brief, expert-informed recommendations for health-focused interventions involve (i) strengthened management and planning, (ii) enhanced transmission barriers and sanitation, and (iii) well-organized public health screening, all of which require the collaboration and coordination of governments, international organizations, relevant sectors, and stakeholders.
