European Council updates recommendation on restrictions to travel from third countries


The European Council has updated its recommended rules for foreigners entering the EU amid the COVID-19 pandemic coronavirus infection.

Under the new version of the document, EU countries can relax restrictions for tourists who have received a full course of vaccinations against COVID-19 at least two weeks before arrival. 

According to the European Council recommendation, vaccination with drugs approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the World Health Organization (WHO) may be the basis for entry without additional restrictions in the form of a PCR test or quarantine departure. The EMA currently approves vaccines developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, and the WHO also approves a Chinese vaccine from Sinopharm. Russian vaccines Sputnik V, EpiVacCorona, and CoviVac are not among the approved vaccines.
