EU to reopen borders for 15 countries from 1st July – America, Russia, and India didn't make the list

EU to reopen borders for 15 countries from 1st July – America, Russia, and India didn't make the list

An EU diplomatic source confirmed reopening borders and lifting travel restrictions on 15 third countries from July 1st.

 

EU Council reads:

"The Council today adopted a recommendation on the gradual lifting of the temporary restrictions on non-essential travel into the EU. Travel restrictions should be lifted for countries listed in the recommendation, with this list being reviewed and, as the case may be, updated every two weeks."

 

The list of safe countries provisionally includes:

Algeria

Australia

Canada

Georgia

China

Japan

Montenegro

Morocco

New Zealand

Rwanda

Serbia

South Korea 

Thailand

Tunisia

Uruguay

 

*UK is also not currently affected by travel restrictions.

 

What about other countries?

For all the Americans planning to travel to Europe, it will be a huge disappointment that the US has not made the list.

But the EU clearly stated that the huge number of cases and deaths in the US meant the risk is still too high to reopen borders.

The same currently applies to Brazil, India, and Russia.

 

The EU reads that the list of safe countries will be updated every two weeks:

"This list of third countries should be reviewed every two weeks and may be updated by the Council, as the case may be, after close consultations with the Commission and the relevant EU agencies and services following an overall assessment based on the criteria above."

 

Also stating that:

"Travel restrictions may be totally or partially lifted or reintroduced for a specific third country already listed according to changes in some of the conditions and, as a consequence, in the assessment of the epidemiological situation. If the situation in a listed third country worsens quickly, rapid decision-making should be applied."
