Latest updates of the EU Covid safe travel list

The Council of the EU updated the list of countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted – thus including Argentina, Colombia, Namibia, and Peru to the EU Covid safe travel list in October and, later in November, the removal of Singapore and Ukraine. Moreover, on 15 November, the Commission adopted four decisions certifying that Covid-19 certificates by Georgia, Moldova, New Zealand and Serbia are equivalent to the EU Digital COVID Certificate. So far, 49 countries are connected to the European system.

We very much welcome that more countries use the same system, as this will smooth citizens’ freedom of travel. In this regard, HOTREC issued a joint position paper on lifting travel restrictions. EU countries should thus move towards a traveller risk-based approach, and international travel should be made possible with the same conditions as for intra-EU travel.
