EU Council reviews the list of Countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted

 

Based on each country epidemiological situation and containment measures and on economic and social considerations, as well as on reciprocity, the Council has updated the list of countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted. In particular, the Council recommends that Canada, Georgia and Tunisia should be deleted from the list while Singapore should be added. Also, if reciprocity is confirmed, travel should be possible with the Hong Kong SAR and Macao SAR. The updated list of countries for which temporary restrictions on non-essential travel into the EU should be lifted as of October 22 is as follows:

  • Australia
  • Japan
  • New Zealand
  • Rwanda
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • Thailand
  • Uruguay
  • China, subject to confirmation of reciprocity

 

Each Schengen country should now adopt the Council recommendation and update their entry regulations
