The EU is changing travel rules and green certificates

The EU Council has announced that it has adopted a recommendation to change the rules on travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Council recommends that from 1 February the restrictions be based on the passenger and not on the place of arrival. It is assumed that anyone with a valid certificate will be allowed to cross the border without additional conditions.

The validity of certificates for vaccinated is recommended to be 270 days, for patients – 180 days, and for tested – up to 72 hours from the moment of sampling.

Non-certified passengers may need to be tested immediately before travel or within 24 hours of arrival. The EU Council proposes that the general rules should not apply to border guards, important travelers and children under the age of 12.

It is assumed that all these proposals will apply to travel from countries outside the so-called. dark red area where the spread of the disease is strong. Today, for the fourth time, the EU Council has issued general recommendations on freedom of movement since the beginning of the pandemic.

We will remind, earlier DIP reported that the Ukrainian tourists can face difficulties during trips to Europe after February 1.
