COVID-19: European Council removes Jordan from the list of countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted
December 6, 2021
Following a review under the recommendation on the gradual lifting of the temporary restrictions on non-essential travel into the EU, the Council updated the list of countries, special administrative regions and other entities and territorial authorities for which travel restrictions should be lifted. In particular Jordan and Namibia were removed from the list.
This review is a regular process, taking into account a defined set of criteria which were last updated on 20 May 2021. They cover the epidemiological situation and overall response to COVID-19, as well as the reliability of the available information and data sources. Reciprocity should also be taken into account on a case by case basis. As stipulated in the Council recommendation, this list will continue to be reviewed every two weeks and, as the case may be, updated.
