Fully Vaccinated Foreigners Can Travel to Europe This Summer
Travelers must prove full vaccination 14 days prior to arriving.
After announcing that fully vaccinated Americans can travel to its countries, the European Union has shared that it will ease its travel restrictions on alll foreign travelers, as long as they can prove full vaccination 14 days prior to arriving. As of now, COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Council of the European Union include Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.
“We know that consumers want to be able to travel this summer and so we welcome that European countries could enable those who are vaccinated could travel without the need for testing,” a source told CNBC. “It is of course important that this is implemented in a simple way to ensure it is easy for passengers.”
While the announcement has been made by the EU, it will ultimately be up to each member state on when and to whom it will decide to reopen its borders. The 27 nations can choose whether to lift quarantine restrictions or test those visiting from overseas. Children below the vaccination age group can travel with their family as long as they provide a negative test result within 72 hours before arrival.
