When COVID-19 hit, we all understood why borders needed to be closed to halt tourism and protect ourselves and others.

But love is not tourism. This is not about a mere summer holiday, or a city break to escape a stressful job. This is about binational unmarried couples who haven't seen each other in a year. This is for all of those who have spent every month since COVID-19 struck thinking "just one month more" just to realize it wasn't going to happen. This is for all of those who are still holding on to a video call at night or a morning text, hoping to be reunited with their partner soon.

Enough is enough. We understand safety must be a priority, but at some point (especially as we approach the one-year mark since the pandemic), we call for the help of anyone who can do something: from signing this petition to voicing this message on other social media platforms.

This is now about mental health, and trying to end the feeling of loneliness and frustration that come with not being able to see your loved ones for months and months in a row.

We as international lovers and families, urge governments of all states to amend their travel restrictions. Allow the un-bureaucratic and safe reunion of partners in long distance relationships as well as family members.

We are willing to submit to appropriate safety regulations: self-paid test upon arrival and quarantine until a negative result is received or a 14 day strict quarantine, as long as unmarried couples and families can visit their most important people, as is possible in Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Czechia, Iceland, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Canada and Singapore.

Let's turn the hopes of reuniting someday into a reality.
