As you may have heard today, the European Union (EU) issued recommendations to limit travel from the U.S. and has removed the U.S from their Safe Country list. Please note that the recommendation is non-binding, and each individual EU country has the right to set their own guidelines as it pertains to traveler entry.
It is important to stress that this decision is guidance only and does not have any immediate effect on travel rules. It is now up to individual countries to decide whether, how, and when to implement this guidance.
