EU travel ban extended until June 15”

Tourists wearing a protective face mask amid fears of the spread of the Covid-19 novel coronavirus walk at the Pyramide du louvre area on February 28, 2020 in Paris.

The travel ban prohibits travel of non-essential persons into Europe, with the exceptions of long-term European Union residents, EU nationals' family members, diplomats, doctors and those researching how to contain the virus.

"It is imperative that any action taken is gradual, with different measures being lifted in different phases", said Margaritis Schinas, the EU Executive's Vice-President for Promoting our European Way of Life.

The Schengen Member States and the Schengen Associated States may remain closed to non-EEA nationals for another month as the European Commission has invited these countries to extend the temporary restriction on non-essential travel to the EU for another 30 days, until June 15. "And we need to do so as soon as the health situation allows it", Johansson said during a videoconference with European lawmakers.

It restricts nonessential travel from outside the bloc to the EU.

"We need a phased and coordinated approach". Other nations also moved quickly to close their internal borders to travelers, even those from fellow-member states - a move which was frowned-upon in Brussels.

Healthcare workers and other workers, including those transporting cargo, are also exempt from the restrictions.

But Europe's external borders are now bound to be shut for any non-essential travel until at least mid-June, an emergency measure to limit the spread of the virus. By May 8th there were more than 1.5 million cases of coronavirus infection reported across Europe, with Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom and Germany among the worst-hit countries.
