The European Union (EU) is taking steps towards easing travel rules for tourists outside of the 27-nation bloc. Today, the EU ambassadors agreed to allow in fully vaccinated visitors. They also agreed to lessen the criteria required for countries to be considered COVID-19 safe and where tourists can travel.
Only 7 nations have been cleared on their list as those countries have coronavirus and vaccinations status under control. The imposed restrictions on non-essential travel in the EU last year were to slow down the spread of COVID-19. The bloc’s ambassadors recommend those restrictions to be eased including travel by non-EU residents.
Nations in the EU have been struggling as they rely heavily on tourism industries. Greece is reliant on tourism, so they already lifted quarantine restrictions for the U.S., Britain, Israel, and other non-EU countries.
