No travel to Europe. | DIEGO VARA


British nationals planning to travel to any of the European Union Member States after January 1 for purposes that are not absolutely essential, risk being banned from entering these countries amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

While the EU is yet to come with an official decision, since the UK joins the group of countries that are considered as third-countries to the EU and given the high number of Coronavirus cases marked in the country, the chances are high that Britain will be listed among the countries to which the EU has sealed off its borders since mid-March 2020.

Asked ABOUT the possibility of including BritONS in the list of travellers banned from entering due to COVID-19, a Commission spokesperson said that such a thing has not been decided yet, but it is possible.

The current Council recommendation on the temporary restriction on non-essential travel into the EU and the possible lifting of such restriction is applicable to the United Kingdom during the transition period established until December 31, 2020, on the basis of the Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community,” the spokesperson said.
