The European Union is preparing to reopen its borders to a number of countries from 1 July 2020, following the vote of the 15 countries on the list tomorrow, Monday 29 June 2020.
According to a European diplomatic source, the proposed list was discussed at a meeting of EU and Schengen ambassadors.
Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia are on the list, along with Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Uruguay and China.
The same source stated that the European Union will also receive nationals from Andorra, Monaco, the Vatican and San Marino.
EU member states have requested more time before Monday to consult and vote on the decision, provided that the list is reviewed every two weeks.
This initiative was adopted in view of the critical state of the world economy following the spread of the VIDOC-19 pandemic.
It should be noted that the list therefore excludes Russia, Brazil and the United States.
