European Union

Posted: Wednesday, June 24, 2020. 10:03 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The European Union (EU) is compiling a list of countries that can visit once its borders reopen and the United States is not on the draft list, reports the New York Times.

The list is being prepared in anticipation of the EU reopening its borders for member and non-member countries on July 1. Making it on the list is reportedly governed by how each country handled the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, the US is the most affected country by COVID-19 in the world, with over 2.4 million cases and over 126,000 deaths, which reportedly remains a concern for the EU. Notably, the US removed its restriction on domestic travel last week and has seen a surge in COVID-19 cases, which also contributed to the decision to bar its citizens from visiting the EU at the initial reopening of its borders.

The list, which will be finalized before July 1, will be reviewed on a bi-weekly basis as the world continues to combat COVID-19.

There are travel restrictions in place restricting nonessential travel to all 27 EU member states plus Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. These restrictions were introduced in March and have been extended twice to end on July 1.
