The European Union or EU has once again recommended that its 27 nations reinstate travel restrictions on tourists coming from the United States due to the rise in COVID-19 and Delta Variant cases.

According to NBC News, the decision by the European Council to remove the U.S. from a safe list of countries for nonessential travel reverses advice that it gave in June when the bloc recommended lifting restrictions on U.S. travelers before the summer tourism season.

The guidance is nonbinding, however, and U.S. travelers should expect that each country might have different travel restrictions for those coming from the US.

“Nonessential travel to the E.U. from countries or entities not listed is subject to temporary travel restriction,” the council said in a statement. “This is without prejudice to the possibility for member states to lift the temporary restriction on nonessential travel to the E.U. for fully vaccinated travelers.”

It should be noted that the United Kingdom is not a part of the European Union, to see the current UK and US travel restrictions click here.
