EU will ease travel curbs on foreign tourists

European Union countries have now agreed to ease COVID travel restrictions for visitors, meaning the summer tourist season could be open to all Britons and also vaccinated Americans.

They are expected to set a new list this week or early next week.

Based on data from the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Britain and a number of other countries would meet the new criteria.

The United States would not, but Americans with proof of vaccination would be welcomed.

Because under the plan, EU countries that waive test or quarantine requirements for vaccinated EU tourists are encouraged to do the same for vaccinated non-EU holidaymakers.

It may not be a universal opening, however. Individual countries can and will still be able to choose to demand a negative COVID-19 test or a period of quarantine.
