In a publication, the Chair indicates that an “agreement between Member States in the IPCR has been reached. [grupo de resposta do Conselho a situações de crise] this morning to remove the emergency brake in place to allow the resumption of air traffic with southern African countries”.

“Travelers from this area will, however, continue to be subject to the health measures applicable to travelers from third countries”, he adds.
