Europe Will Open its Doors to Vaccinated American Tourists This Summer

Americans haven’t been able to visit Europe on nonessential trips for over a year, but that now looks set to change.

Fully vaccinated tourists from the States will be able to come to the European Union over the summer, Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, has recently told the New York Times.

Advance talks between the States and the E.U. about enabling vaccine passports have been taking place for weeks, with von der Leyen stating that such certificates would “enable free movement and the travel to the European Union.”

Precise details and an exact timeline of when borders may open have not yet been released, but these talks are a hopeful sign of a breezier future.

And if you can’t wait for your European trip? Greece has already announced that Americans who can show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test can now visit the holiday hotspot.
