About a month ago, we shared the latest updates regarding the still going pandemic. Honestly, the global situation is constantly changing for good and for bad. While certain countries are welcoming tourists once again and letting go of healthy restrictions, others unfortunately are going back in time and limiting mobility.
As we said, it’s an unstable situation we are currently living in and one more time there are updates concerning Europe. Almost all European countries have opened their borders allowing citizens to move freely within the EU territory. Of course, taking into consideration the necessary health procedures, such as negative test results and a vaccination passport.
But the situation is not the same for foreigner travellers. Visitors outside the EU are only allowed to enter the continent as long as they come from countries that appear in the “white list”. This “white list” is a selection of nations that have been considered safe by the EU and that do not require travellers to go under a mandatory quarantine. They can also move freely between member nations as any other EU citizen.
This past week, said list has been updated, but not with a positive outcome. Six nations have been removed from the “white list”, which seems to be getting shorter every passing month. And no countries were added either.
The removed countries are the US, Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Montenegro, and the Republic of North Macedonia. That leaves the following remaining:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Brunei Darussalam
- New Zealand
- Republic of Moldova
- Saudi Arabia
- South Korea
Maybe Europe will be (or not) the destination for your next holiday, but for 2027 you might want to consider going a bit further on the map.
