EU establishes list of 14 ‘safe travel’ countries, with China and US to be excluded

The EU has named 14 countries whose citizens may be deemed safe for entry from 1st July, with the US, Brazil and Russia likely to be excluded.

China is also not currently on the list. This would only change under the condition that Beijing would do the same for Europeans.

The proposed list contains: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.

The list has yet to achieve final approval.
