On May 19, the European Union has announced that it will ease COVID-19 travel restrictions to non- EU visitors. The EU will introduce a new list of safe countries and although the United States is not expected to be on the safe list, fully vaccinated travelers from the United States will be welcomed.
Travelers from the U.S. will have to present evidence of their vaccination records before they are allowed to travel. The vaccines will need to have been received at least 14 days before traveling. Under the plan, EU countries that waive test or quarantine requirements for vaccinated EU tourists are encouraged to do the same for vaccinated non-EU holidaymakers. Full details of the new travel rules are expected to be released in the coming days.
The United States have not at this time eased the travel ban on the Schengen countries. Travel restrictions still apply to non-citizens and non-permanent residents travelling from Europe to the United States. Those residing in the U.S. on visas should review the travel ban rules before making travel plans to ensure that they can come back to the U.S.
