EU recommends member states lift travel restrictions for passengers from US

The European Union has recommended member states to lift their travel restrictions for people travelling from the United States.

EU members agreed to allow passengers come from the United States for non-essential reasons.


The recommendation is not compulsory for nations to take on. Member states have the authority to allow the current travel restrictions to remain.

The move comes as several EU countries have already begun using the Covid-19 certificate model adopted by the EU Commission, with most remaining nations expected to begin allowing the certificate from July.

The European Council updates the travel list for the EU every two weeks.


The list is updated based on the epidemiological situation of Covid-19 in various countries.

Today’s recommendations will be formalised on Friday.
