The EC has advised Schengen Member States and Schengen Associated States to lift internal border controls by 15 June and prolong the temporary restriction on non-essential travel into the European Union (EU) until 30 June.
“Following the lifting of all internal border checks inside the Union, we are proposing a clear and flexible approach towards removing restrictions on travel to the EU starting on 1 July,” said Commissioner for Home Affairs Ylva Johansson. “International travel is key for tourism and business, and for family and friends reconnecting. While we will all have to remain careful, the time has come to make concrete preparations for lifting restrictions with countries whose health situation is similar to the EU's and for resuming visa operations.”
