0:00 Where US Travellers Can Go in Europe
1:30 Where US Travellers Can Go in Europe
The United States was added to the white list in mid-June after reporting a decreasing trend in COVID-19 case numbers, and Americans have been able to travel around some European countries with relative ease this summer.
However, that changed last week after the US along with Israel, Lebanon, Kosovo, Montenegro and North Macedonia were removed from the EU’s white list.
The EU’s white list is made up of countries from outside the EU that have low COVID-19 infection rates and are therefore considered safe.
Residents from white list countries are permitted to enjoy quarantine-free travel to and within the EU, without additional restrictions such as testing.
The US was dropped from the list as the country surpassed the white list limit of 75 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 over a 14-day period, with hospitalisations across the country increasing too.
This means that the EU recommends that the 27 member states start to reimpose a travel ban on US visitors, and American tourists are no longer eligible to travel to some countries restriction-free.
2:57 Impacts on US Travellers
The recommendation is not binding and it’s up to each individual country to decide whether or not to impose them.
Several EU countries have announced that they will keep permitting tourists from the US for non-essential reasons including tourism.
Other countries followed the recommendation by allowing only vaccinated visitors from the US and testing requirements before entry.
These are the European countries that have imposed restrictions on US travellers.
The US is designated as a high risk “red zone” area in Bulgaria’s classification system and therefore people are not permitted to travel to Bulgaria from the US at present.
Denmark has announced that from 6 September unvaccinated travellers arriving from the US are banned from entering the country.
Italy now obliges all travellers from the US and those who have stayed there during the last 14 days to present a PCR or rapid antigen test results taken within 72 hours before entry, regardless of their vaccination status.
Arrivals from the US must self-quarantine for 10 days upon arrival, and present a negative result from a PCR test taken within 48 hours of departure.
From 6 September, non-vaccinated US travellers have been banned from entering Spain.
As of September 6, residents of the US are not permitted to enter Sweden for nonessential travel, regardless of vaccination status, until at least 31 October.
