US Excluded From ‘Safe List’ For Travel To The European Union

BBC News:- The EU has named 14 countries whose citizens are deemed “safe” to be let in from 1 July, despite the pandemic – but the US, Brazil and China are excluded.

Those named include Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco and South Korea.

The EU is ready to add China if the Chinese government offers a reciprocal deal for EU travellers, diplomats say.

Many border controls have been lifted for EU citizens travelling inside the bloc. Rules for UK travellers are part of the current Brexit negotiations.

But UK nationals are still to be treated in the same way as EU citizens until the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December, the EU Commission says.

So during this period UK nationals and their family members are exempt from the EU’s temporary travel restriction.

On the current “safe” list, still likely to be amended, are Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.

EU nations in the 26-member Schengen zone normally allow passport-free border crossings for EU citizens, but national authorities have reimposed restrictions in this crisis.

  1. So the news is that St. Lucia along with some other Caribbean islands was on the EU’s draft list for approval but because of CIP they had to be removed since the EU was very worried about the travelers with the Caribbean passports not coming from the Caribbean but actually from China, Russia – all the places where the Caribbean passports were sold.

    Now our indigenous population is suffering because of CIP.

  2. USA has now officially obtained, 3rd world, ” $hithole country” status. I bet American’s wish they they were Canadians right now. Looks good on them for voting in that “orange maggot.”
