On January 25, the European Commission proposed additional safeguards and requirements for international travellers into the EU. This was reported by the Commission's press service.

In particular, the new requirements apply to those travelling to the EU for essential reasons, EU citizens and long-term residents as well as their family members, and those travelling from countries for which the non-essential travel restriction was lifted.

Travellers will be required to conduct a PCR-test. It should be taken at least 72 hours before departure. Besides that, it is noted that EU citizens, residents, and their family members should have the possibility to take the test after arriving in the country.

Mandatory testing can be combined with a requirement of self-isolation, quarantine and contact tracing as well as additional testing as needed for a period of up to 14 days.

As we reported earlier, the European Commission intends to get 70% of the EU's adult population vaccinated within the next few months.
