European countries have agreed on a coordinated approach to facilitate free movement of travelers in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Based on the criteria and conditions set out in the European recommendation, as from 8 October 2021, member states should gradually lift the travel restrictions at the external borders for residents of the following third countries:
- New Zealand;
- Saudi Arabia;
- South Korea;
- United Arab Emirates;
- China, subject to confirmation of reciprocity.
Kindly note that the entry requirement may still vary from country to country. Please refer to the official website Re-Open EU where you can find specific information for each country.
