European Union to bar travellers from US, Russia, Brazil

Brussels/UNI:  The European Union (EU) on Saturday announced that it will exclude travellers coming from the United States, Brazil and Russia when the bloc reopens its borders to outsiders on July 1, citing the uncontrolled transmission of the new coronavirus in the three countries.

Ambassadors from the 27 EU members met to establish criteria for granting quarantine-free access from next Wednesday, Al Jazeera reported.

The meeting ended with a tentative list of about 18 countries free to travel to Europe, but list did not include the United States, Brazil or Russia. National governments were given until 16:00 GMT to approve the list.

Travellers from China would be approved to enter, but only subject to reciprocity from Beijing, the agencies said.
