Dear visitor,

European countries have agreed on a coordinated approach to facilitate free movement of travelers in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the recommendation, the following categories of persons should be allowed to travel into the EU under certain conditions:

  • vaccinated persons;
  • essential travellers;
  • non-essential travellers from countries on the EU’s list.

Every two weeks, EU Member States review and update the list of non-EU countries from which non-essential travelers should be allowed. As from 17 January 2022, member states should gradually lift the travel restrictions of the following countries:

  • Bahrain;
  • Chile;
  • China, subject to confirmation of reciprocity.
  • Colombia;
  • Indonesia;
  • Kuwait;
  • New Zealand;
  • Peru;
  • Qatar;
  • Rwanda;
  • Saudi Arabia;
  • South Korea;
  • United Arab Emirates;
  • Uruguay;

Travel restrictions should also be gradually lifted for citizens of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

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.

We hope to welcome you to Europe again soon!
