The EU, on Tuesday, consented the reopening of its borders to 15 countries – including Thailand.
The European Union (EU) allowed the border reopening as it struggles to take on the pandemic’s financial brunt, with economies across the continent suffering badly.
The reopening is seen as a move to revive the already-strained economic activity of the union.
The countries deliberated by the EU and deemed safe enough to allow re-entry are:
Algeria, Australia, Canada, Japan, Georgia, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, and Uruguay.
US, Russia, and Turkey are among the prominent countries who were not allowed access into the European bloc.
On the other hand, China will be allowed re-entry into the EU on the condition that Beijing reciprocates, allowing EU citizens entry into their country.
The loosening of the border is set to be reviewed by the council in two weeks.
The implementation of the border reopening would be up to its member states, whether they would allow entry or not.
