In a move that was anticipated, the European Union is recommending to its associated countries to limit the travel of U.S. to citizens to its member states. The recommendation as it stands now is primarily due to the rising number of COVID cases in the U.S. The updated announcement is due to the lack of robust vaccination rates in the U.S., fears of COVID spread due to the variant and rising numbers. Each member state will ultimately decide on specific border entry requirements. Many cruise lines in the E.U. require passengers to be vaccinated. It is anticipated that many member states will adopt this stance instead of completely blocking U.S. citizens' travel.Travellers should consult with their travel advisors, airlines and other travel professionals.
It is always a good idea to check with the U.S. Embassy of the country you are planning to visit. The situation is changing on a daily and minute to minute basis. The Biden Administration has not lifted the travel ban for Europeans wishing to visit the U.S. in over 500 days. This has proved frustrating to E.U. member states, considering Europe has higher vaccination rates and many countries have implemented stricter guidelines as compared with the United States. The EU also removed Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Montenegro, and North Macedonia from the safe travel list.
