EU to allow in visitors from 14 'safe' countries

Passport control at Larnaca airport Cyprus

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

Chinese citizens will be allowed into the European Union in principle - but only once China lifts its ban on European Union citizens.

The UK is now negotiating "air bridges" with several European countries and UK nationals are still treated as EU citizens until December 31, the end of the Brexit transition period.

According to a new report in the British press, the Boris Johnson government is negotiating "air bridges" with European Union countries in order to ensure summer holidays for its citizens.

The BBC's Europe editor, Katya Adler, says the European Union written procedure to formalise the list, and criteria by which countries are judged safe or not, are to be finalised by midday on Tuesday.


European Union has revealed the new list of countries that will be permitted to enter the EU from July 1, when the external borders are officially scheduled to be reopened, but the United States is excluded due to the Coronavirus developments.

Locked away in a meeting room in Brussels, officials are debating who will be allowed to enter the European Union on July 1 when the bloc's worldwide borders are scheduled to be opened - and who will be forbidden.

The report added that Spain which is one of the countries worst hit by the virus including Greece and Portugal are still split over the decision to bar other nations on the list since a large majority of their national income depends on tourism.

Countries were included on the safe list if they had 16 cases or less for every 100.00 people over the last two weeks. The New York Times said the list would be revised every two weeks, so the United States could be added later. However, EU member Croatia announced on Wednesday that travellers from Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia and North Macedonia would all face 14-day self-isolation, because of an increase in infections.
