The European Commission recommended that EU member states extend restrictions on non-mandatory travel for foreigners until June 15, the EC said in a statement.
“Today, the European Commission has proposed to the Schengen member states and countries associated with Schengen to extend the temporary restrictions on non-mandatory travel to the EU for another 30 days, until June 15,” the EC stressed.
The borders of EU countries were closed at the proposal of the EC in March this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. It affected all 27 states in the EU and four countries that are part of Schengen but are not members of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.
Initially, it was planned to keep the borders closed for 30 days, but later this decision was extended several times.
