Travel exemption from the EU to two more countries

The European Union (EU), which has updated the list of countries where travel restrictions can be lifted, has also included Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

According to the statement made by the European Council, the list of countries that apply to non-essential travel and where it is recommended to gradually lift restrictions has been updated. With the latest update, EU countries will be able to lift travel restrictions for Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

The list previously included Australia, Canada, Chile, Jordan, Kuwait, New Zealand, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Ukraine and Uruguay. In the list, it was stated that the borders to China could be kept open if EU countries allowed their citizens to travel.

The EU’s list is advisory for member states and is not binding. The list is updated every two weeks.

While touristic trips to the EU from the countries on the list are allowed, some measures such as testing and quarantine can be applied to passengers. EU countries’ travel restrictions to countries not included in the list continue.

In March last year, the EU decided to impose restrictions on non-essential travel to 27 member states, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, which are part of the Schengen area, in order to prevent the spread of the epidemic.
