Summary:

Recommendation (EU) 2020/1551 - adopted by the Council of the European Union on 22 October 2020 - introducing amendments to Council Recommendation (EU) 2020/912 on the temporary restriction on non-essential travel into the EU and the possible lifting of such restriction.

Further information:

Council Recommendation (EU) 2020/912 suggests rules for the imposition of temporary restrictions on non-essential travel into the European Union (EU) and the conditions for lifting such restrictions.

Following a review based on this recommendation, the Council of the European Union adopted on 7 August 2020 an update to the list of countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted. The criteria to determine the third countries for which the current travel restriction should be lifted cover in particular the epidemiological situation and containment measures, including physical distancing, as well as economic and social considerations. They are applied cumulatively.
