The European Union is expected to recommend that member states start lifting restrictions on tourists from the United States.
EU ambassadors agreed Wednesday to consider incorporating the United States into the list of countries from which nonessential travel is permitted. EU ministers will vote on the recommendation Friday.
If accepted, it could apply to all U.S. travelers, such as those that aren’t vaccinated. But it is worth noting that the EU recommendation is nonbinding and not enforceable.
Each of the EU’s 27 member countries can decide how and when to adopt the recommendation and establish its own rules, including requiring COVID-19 evaluations or evidence of vaccination for entry.
