The European Union’s executive has recommended easing COVID-19 travel restrictions next month to let foreign travellers from more countries enter the EU, hoping to boost the stricken tourism industry this summer. Under current restrictions, people from only seven countries, including Australia and Singapore, can enter the EU on holiday, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 but subject to tests or quarantine. New proposals outlined by the European Commission yesterday, but still requiring member states’ approval, would allow in foreign citizens who have been fully vaccinated and those who arrive from countries with a “good epidemiological situation”. “Time to revive tourism industry and for cross-border friendships to rekindle - safely,” Commission President Ursula von der Leyen wrote on Twitter. People arriving from Britain, Russia and a number of other countries would meet the new criteria, according to data provided by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). U.S. citizens would not currently do so. “We want to have this done before the mass summer travel starts,” an EU official said. The 27 EU member states are due to start discussing the proposal on Tuesday and the official hoped it would be approved this month.
