European Member States To Reopen Borders For All Vaccinated Travelers. EU member states agreed on Wednesday to reopen the the european member states’ borders to those travelers who have been fully vaccinated against the COVID 19 Corona Virus, European sources said.
It is known that the meeting was held in Brussels and during the meeting diplomats also agreed to increase the level of new cases a country can hit before being declared unsafe — a measure that would open up travel into the EU from more countries in the world.
The recommendations will be adopted by EU ministers on Friday, they mentioned. Currently, only very essential travel is allowed, apart from a small number of countries deemed safe because of their low COVID 19 numbers.
Businesses on the Europe nations are reopening as virus restrictions are phased out and bars, hotels and restaurants are worried about their businesses. It was mentioned in the meeting that, under the new rules, travelers who could demonstrate that they had received the required number of doses of an EU-approved vaccine could enter the EU without any restrictions.
In addition, the number of cases per 100,000 people that a country could register over two weeks and still be considered for the green list will rise from 25 to 75 COVID cases. This would still exclude non-vaccinated travelers from much of the world, but could allow travel from, for example, Britain, which is well-advanced in its vaccination campaign.
