All EU countries will accept tourists who are vaccinated against coronavirus with drugs that have passed the certification of the European Medicines Agency (EMA). This was stated by the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, in an interview with The New York Times.
“One thing is absolutely clear: all 27 countries that are members of the EU will definitely accept everyone who is vaccinated with drugs approved by the European Medicines Agency,” she said.
The EU representative added that the timing of the resumption of travel still depends on the epidemiological situation. Von der Leyen did not specify what the EU policy would be for those travelers who are vaccinated with other vaccines.
The EMA has approved four vaccines for coronavirus vaccination: the American-German consortium Pfizer and BioNTech, the American company Moderna, the British-Swedish AstraZeneca, and the American company Johnson & Johnson. The Russian vaccine “Sputnik V” is in the process of being studied by the European regulator.
