You'll note that that assertion is appended with a ? mark. Contains no link to any official website and that there is no such announcement, currently, on any of the official websites.
The EU has made that recommendation today. At this time it applies only to unvaccinated US travelers.We already closed one thread that was jumping the gun, so please resist the urge to speculate. The report that the EU will remove the US from its “safe list,” which carries with it a non-binding recommendation that its members impose travel restrictions on the countries designated, seems to be well corroborated.
What is totally unknown, though, is the reactions of the member countries. You may remember that when Spain first opened its doors to US non-essential travel, on about June 7, the US not on the EU safe list. Spain required vaccinations to enter. When the EU put the US on its safe list in mid-June, Spain removed the vaccination requirements.
Thanks to a post by @dgrauman on another thread, there is official documentation from Spain assuring that the US will stay on its safe list till September 5.
For the next few days, then, no need for people going to Spain to worry about getting in.
Updates are welcome, but only factual ones please!
No. Official figures suggest that there are a few thousand. The second-homes are gathering dust and the "Full English Breakfasts" are set solid in the freezers waiting for better days. We are not even expected to return next year. Resort allocations to the travel industry for 2022 are down 60%.Are there like hundreds of thousands of British tourists holidaying in Spain now
Or possibly because the case rate in the US greatly exceeds the standards to be considered a "safe" country?Several reports say that this a retaliatory effort to get the US to lighten up on travel restrictions for Europeans.
You realize that you are looking at CNNSorry tinca, it's a Reuters report has been running for a few days. Statement from our European union expected soon. The link is to Euro News a reputable station.
(CNN) — The European Union is expected to recommend on Monday that member states reinstate Covid-related travel restrictions and halt nonessential travel from the United States and five other countries, a diplomatic source told CNN.
The EU would reestablish coronavirus travel restrictions such as quarantine and testing requirements for unvaccinated travelers from those countries, according to the source.
No. Official figures suggest that there are a few thousand.
That's about the same figures as Bournemouth for the same period....The official Spanish stats show 142,507 visitors from the UK in June 2021 alone. That was even before the summer started...
I think there was a "law" in Australia when I lived there that forbade ever serving a pint with a head. It meant immediate termination for the bartender.Bournemouth is as nothing compared to the Lake District!
Confused tourists are being ejected from my local every few minutes for complaining that there’s a head on their pint.
I’m off to Malta.
