Zimbabweans Will Not Be Allowed To Enter Europe When Borders Reopen

Zimbabwe is not among the 54 world countries set out benefit from the reopening of the European Union’s external borders, which is expected to happen by the beginning of July.

The list of countries was compiled following this criteria:

epidemiological situation and coronavirus response in that country,
the ability to apply containment measures during travel, and
whether or not that country has lifted travel restrictions towards the EU.
Sources who spoke to Euronews said EU officials failed to agree on a common list of the countries that would definitely be banned from entering the EU when borders reopening on July 1.

EU officials however managed to create a list of the countries with a better epidemiological situation, whose citizens will be able to enter Europe by the end of this week.

The same sources told Euronews that nationals from Brazil, Qatar, the US and Russia will only be able to enter Europe at a later date when the epidemiological situation in their countries improves.

The draft list comes after an EU Commission presented its recommendation on the reopening of the bloc’s internal borders on June 15. This was to allow Europeans to travel within the borderless area freely, just as they did before the covid-19 pandemic.

African countries on the list include; Angola, Namibia, Mozambique, Egypt, Uganda and Rwanda.

Albania
