Vaccinated and Able to Journey to Europe?

Europe has been closed to Americans and other non-EU tourists for almost a year. This may change shortly for certain vaccinated visitors.

  1. A European vacation could become a reality again this summer, including for American travelers planning to visit Europe
  2. Ursula von der Leyen is President of the European Commission and said so in a media interview today.
  3. A vacation trip to Europe would only be open to fully vaccinated visitors, but not to everyone. Understand the difference.

Americans are being vaccinated in record numbers with the vaccines Pfizer, Moderner or Johnson & Johnson. Many Commonwealth countries use Astra Zeneca. This would qualify to enter the European Union and be considered fully vaccinated.

Visitors from countries using Sputnik or the Chinese vaccine may not be included.

The vaccine must be certified by the European Medical Agency (EMA).

The head of the European Commission said the EU would change its policy under certain conditions after largely banning unnecessary travel for more than a year.

“As far as I can see, Americans use vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency,” said Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, in an interview with The Times in Brussels on Sunday. ‚ÄúThis will enable freedom of movement and travel to the European Union.

The exact timeline is not made public, but a summer vacation could be on the horizon for many Americans, Canadians, Australians and others.

Ursula Gertrud von der Leyen is a German politician and doctor who has been President of the European Commission since December 1, 2019.

This could become a topic of conversation at the ongoing WTTC Travel and Tourism Guide Summit in Cancun. The question of ethics, which allow vaccinated people to travel versus unvaccinated people, has been a hot topic in the US, Europe and elsewhere.

Members of the World Tourism Network seem to welcome the EU’s move in a short flash survey that WTN carried out a few minutes ago.
