According to the statement made by the European Council, the list of countries that apply for non-essential travel and where it is recommended to gradually lift restrictions has been updated.
With the latest update, EU countries will be able to lift travel restrictions to Argentina, Colombia, Namibia and Peru.
The list previously included Australia, Canada, Chile, Jordan, Kuwait, New Zealand, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Ukraine, Uruguay, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.
In the list, it was stated that the borders to China could be kept open if EU countries allowed their citizens to travel. The EU’s list is advisory for member states and is not binding. The list is updated every two weeks.
While touristic trips to the EU from the countries on the list are allowed, some measures such as testing and quarantine can be applied to passengers. EU countries’ travel restrictions to countries not included in the list continue.
