EU To Impose Travel Restrictions On Unvaccinated Americans

WHO Speaks Out Against Vaccine Travel Passports
Just when you thought you could vacation like it’s 2019 again, we’ve got news for you: you can’t. That’s because the European Union is looking to tighten its restrictions on travelers coming from the U.S. due to the rise in COVID-19 cases stateside and of course, the increasing spread of the Delta variant. Here’s what you need to know.

EU To Impose Travel Restrictions On Unvaccinated Americans

You might want to consider pushing back that shopping trip to Paris until at least 2022, especially if you are unvaccinated, as the EU has taken off the US from its travel safe list. The decision by the European Council to remove the U.S. from a safe list of countries for nonessential travel reverses the advice that it gave in June, when the bloc recommended lifting restrictions on all U.S. travelers before the summer tourism season.


The guidance  is non-binding for EU member states. That means it remains up to each individual EU country to decide whether to allow “nonessential travel to the EU for fully vaccinated travelers,” according to reports.

“What is going on now is both entirely predictable, but entirely preventable. And you know we know we have the wherewithal with vaccines to turn this around,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the US government’s top infectious diseases expert. “We could turn this around and we could do it efficiently and quickly if we just get those people vaccinated.”


More than 15 million Americans a year visited Europe before the coronavirus crisis. It’s been noted that travel restrictions could cost European businesses billions in lost travel revenues, especially in tourism-reliant countries.
