European Union countries on target to welcome vaccinated U.S. guests by mid-June.
EU President Ursula von der Leyen is optimistic that this will happen.
In an article published in the New York Times on Sunday, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced that U.S. citizens who have been vaccinated would be allowed to travel to any European Union country this summer. A date for the return of U.S. citizens is yet to be announced but based on current vaccination schedules, it could be by mid-June. This can happen von der Layen said, because the United States uses European Medicines Approved vaccines "this will enable free movement and the travel to the European Union," von der Leyen said. "Because one thing is clear: All 27 member states will accept, unconditionally, all those who are vaccinated with vaccines that are approved by EMA." Greece, a member of EU has already approved visits by vaccinated US citizen's as of April 19th.
