The EU Council reported that Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Montenegro, the Republic of North Macedonia and the United States were removed from the list.

The decision involves re-imposing restrictions on non-essential travel from those countries.

The statement noted that non-essential travel to the EU from countries or entities not registered on the approved list are subject to temporary restrictions.

However, it is an EU recommendation and European capitals may allow a certain number of arrivals of fully vaccinated travelers, in a scenario of broad concern about the increase in cases of the disease.

United States borders are closed to the vast majority of foreign travelers, whether they present evidence against Covid-19 or if they are vaccinated (since March 2020).

Currently no country in Latin America is on the EU list authorizing non-essential travel. The last one, Uruguay, was delisted in December 2020.
