(September, 2021)

Are U.S. travelers allowed into the European Union?

On August 30th, the United States was removed from the European Council’s approved countries list due to the rise of Covid-19 and the Delta variant, and will remain off the list until reaching fewer than 75 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. As a result, European countries have responded with a wide range of policy adjustments— from complete bans on travel from the U.S., to only allowing vaccinated visitors. Each country in Europe sets its own requirements. We’ve compiled each country’s current entry requirements in detail:
