Effective June 30, 2020, the Council of the European Union has recommended to lift the non-essential travel ban into the EU for the following 15 countries:

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

The list will be revised and updated every two weeks. Ultimately, it will remain up to individual EU countries to make the call for their borders, meaning in some cases countries could reimpose internal borders.
