EU signs off on 15 countries that will be allowed to enter EU when borders open

EU member states have agreed to a list of 15 countries that will be allowed to enter when external borders reopen.

An EU diplomatic source confirmed to Euronews that the draft list of 15 countries we reported on Monday has enough votes to pass and that an official announcement is expected later on Tuesday.

There are two lists, one for those that will be allowed to enter, and one for those who will not.

The full list of countries whose nationals will be allowed to enter Europe according to the draft list is as follows:

  • Algeria
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Georgia
  • Japan
  • Montenegro
  • Morocco
  • New Zealand
  • Rwanda
  • Serbia
  • South Korea
  • Thailand
  • Tunisia
  • Uruguay
  • China *subject to confirmation of reciprocity

State had asked the ECDC, the EU agency for disease prevention, to come up with more details, the sources said, adding that the lists will be reviewed every two weeks.
