In Brussels, a meeting was held today to conclude who will be on the list of countries that may enter the EU once borders reopen on July 1st. Yesterday, European officials failed to make a decision on who makes on the list and so another meeting was held today to reach an agreement.

Not surprisingly, the United States did not make the list. The US is the worst hit country in the world, but the decision to ban the entry of US citizens in EU might not have been based solely on its surges in cases, but also because there is current ban on EU citizens from entering the US. Brazil and Russia are also in the no-entry list due to their failed attempt to contain the virus. Another country, Qatar is also not on the list. The reason remains unknown.

The list of countries that may enter the EU on 1st July are:

Vatican City

Monaco

Montenegro

Andorra

Serbia

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Ukraine

Albania

Turkey

Kosovo

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

Turkmenistan

Vietnam

China

Thailand

Myanmar

Mongolia

Japan

South Korea

Georgia

Bhutan

Lebanon

Indonesia

Uzbekistan

India

Tajikistan

Kazakhstan

Palau

New Zeland

Paraguay

Venezuela

Nicaragua

Costa Rica

Canada

Angola

Tunisia

Namibia

Uganda

Mozambique

Mauritius

Zambia

Rwanda

Ethiopia

Morocco

Algeria

UK nationals may also enter the EU since they are still considered EU citizens until the end of the Brexit transition period which will be on 31/12/2020.
