Citizens of Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro will be able to travel to European Union countries. EU member states took the decision today at a proposal of the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union. This decision is expected to come into effect by the end of next week. The citizens of these countries, including those who are not vaccinated will be able to travel to EU countries.
Removal from the red list of trips comes due to the favorable epidemiological situation in these three states. Meanwhile, two weeks ago, Albania, North Macedonia and Serbia were included in the list of low risk from COVID-19.
Despite the fact that these countries are removed from the red list of travel, the citizens of these countries must respect some other rules against the pandemic. The facilitation of travel conditions in the Western Balkan countries comes at a time when a large number of citizens residing in EU countries, originating from this region, go on annual vacation.
The EU updates the lists every two weeks, according to the epidemiological situation in each country separately.To secure the status of a safe country, it must record a maximum of 75 coronavirus-positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days.
