Schengen states to reopen to third countries from July 1

EU reopen to third countries

From July 1, 2020, the European Commission will start allowing non-Schengen and non-EU travelers to enter the Schengen area. This will unfold as a gradual and partial process.

Josep Borrell, the Vice-President/High Representative, announced the decision at the College of Commissioners meeting on June 10, 2020.

He said that an assessment of permitting travel on July 1 will be done first. Then a definite approach for implementing the gradual lifting of the travel restrictions will be formulated for a few third countries. In time, this could bring back travelers to Schengen areas holding a Schengen tourist visa.

A coordinated effort will be made in this regard by the EU member countries. It will be done with the complete support of the Commission.

The College of Commissioners has been discussing the lifting of border restrictions by many EU member states. The opening of the internal borders of these states is slated to be finalized by the end of June 2020.

The Commission also discussed ways to tackle disinformation on COVID-19.
