01:37 – EU Looks To Welcome Vaccinated US Tourists
After more than a year of EU border restrictions due to the pandemic,
positive news has finally come from the European Commission regarding lifting restrictions to jumpstart travel this summer.
In an interview, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen indicated that American tourists who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 would be allowed to visit the European Union (EU) over the summer.
In terms of leisure travel, the EU has thus far granted entry only to visitors hailing from among a very short list of countries with low COVID-19 rates, including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and South Korea.
Ms. von der Leyen intimated that the European Commission (the EU’s executive branch) will recommend the change in foreign travel policy accordingly, which could finally restore Transatlantic leisure travel
03:42 – Effective Date For EU Travel to Resume
The European Commission president did not provide a timeline as to when the 27-member bloc might begin welcoming US leisure travellers or any details as to how this would be achieved.
But, her comments constitute a solid signal that travel restrictions are soon to change and that the regulatory system will rely upon vaccination certificates.
04:27 – Countries Following EU Recommendations
Although each nation is free to make its own decisions regarding border control, it is likely all EU member states will follow the same advice and direction from the European Commission.
In July 2020, the EU Commission approved a list of third-party countries that were deemed ‘safe’ and could enter the EU without restriction.
05:17 – Other Tourists Allowed to Travel to The EU
While the breaking announcement specifically mentioned the United States, the reopening of the EU will likely include vaccinated nationals from additional third-party countries.
The EU Commission will likely release an entire list of countries that will be allowed to travel to the EU this summer.
05:57 – US Ban on the Schengen Zone
Currently, the presidential proclamation that retained the suspension of travellers from the Schengen Area, is still in place until further notice.
In fact, the US included EU countries on the “Do Not Travel” list based on COVID-19 infection rates.
However, the positive statements from the EU will likely be acknowledged and
reciprocated by the US government.
