EU to allow in visitors from 14 ”safe” countries

With Secret Ink - London

The European Union named 14 countries that are pronounce ”safe” to let in, starting July 1.

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

The Commission is attempting to work out a plan by which the most important holiday season in a year, with million millions of people being involved, would not be failed.

EU border controls have been lifted for EU citizens travelling inside the bloc. UK citizens will enjoy the same treatment until the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December.

Previously this month the European Commission said that reopening borders for travelers from the Western Balkans was a priority from 1 July. However, on Wednesday it was announced people from Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia and North Macedonia would go through 14-day self-isolation upon arrival to EU countries.

The Commission is said to formalise the list and its cafeterias by Tuesday midday. The list is still likely to be amended.

The EU is willing to add China to the list in case of reciprocal offer.

Considering high risks, the US and Brazil are certainly excluded.
