Vaccinated Europeans allowed to travel within the EU

The Council of the European Union has approved the lifting of travel restrictions as of July 1 for citizens who have received two doses of the vaccine against the coronavirus COVID-19.

This was stated in the official press communiqué.

“The Council adopted recommendations to amend the coordinated approach to limit free movement against the backdrop of the changing epidemiological situation, the vaccination campaign and the introduction of the coronavirus certificate,” the statement said.

It is specified that vaccinated citizens and those who have contracted the coronavirus will no longer have to do COVID tests or undergo a self-exclusion regime. One condition is that a second dose of the vaccine must be administered at least 14 days before travel.

“Cured certificate holders must certify that at least 180 days have passed since receiving a positive test,” the EU Council added.
