EU published the safe-countries list allowed to travel
The countries mentioned in the list will be allowed to travel from Wednesday. However, it is recommended to read the instructions or guidelines very carefully on each country’s website before traveling.
The “safe” countries are Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, and Uruguay, the European Council said on Tuesday. In addition, China would be included if it reciprocated by allowing in EU travelers.Al Arabiya, 2020
Russia, Brazil, and Turkey, along with the United States, are among countries whose containment of the virus is considered worse than that of the EU average and so will have to wait at least two weeks. The bloc will carry out fortnightly reviews.Al Arabiya, 2020
Besides this, many EU Countries will be asking for a COVID-19 test to get a visa or even at the arrival stage. This requirement is becoming general for travelling as we have seen the UAE also implemented a similar approach for entering the country.
