From March 1, restrictions on entry into the EU will also be lifted for people who have been protected with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO).
That’s according to a non-binding recommendation agreed by EU states on Tuesday (February 22). Until now, restrictions on non-essential entry were only waived for people who had been vaccinated with an EU-approved preparation. The WHO list also includes the two Chinese vaccines, Sinopharm and Sinovac. However, the individual EU states can demand further requirements from persons who have received a vaccine from the WHO list, such as a negative PCR test or quarantine. The EU Commission is now to review whether the list of third countries from which entry is possible without restrictions should be lifted by the end of April. Instead, a completely person-based approach could then be adopted.
