Aussie travellers given the green light to travel in EU nations

Font Size:

The European Union (EU) has given Aussie travellers the thumbs up, declaring our nation ‘safe’ and one of the few countries allowed entry into the EU’s 27-member block as of 1 July.

The ‘safe list’ is still being finalised, but excludes the US, Brazil and China, reports The New Daily.

The EU has dropped all travel restrictions on member states to enable citizens to travel within the bloc. As for who else will be allowed in? EU diplomats will decide based on how well nations have been able to contain or manage COVID-19.

As of 1 July, Australia and 17 other countries, including New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Thailand and Rwanda, have been allowed entry into EU nations.

The EU is in the process of deciding whether citizens from China will also be allowed to travel within and through the block, and will reportedly base its decision on whether Beijing lifts restrictions on travel from Europe.

The EU ‘safe list’ will be reviewed every two weeks, with countries being included or excluded depending on their handling of the pandemic.
