December 22, local time, the European Commission recommended that EU member states suspend the travel ban on the United Kingdom, which is currently in effect, in order to resume freight and basic traffic as soon as possible and ensure that EU residents can return to their homes.
The European Commission said that when EU residents return to countries from the United Kingdom, they should be allowed to travel if they hold a negative nucleic acid test result or quarantine for 10 days after entering the country.
The EU Judiciary Commissioner Didier Reyndes said in a statement that the travel ban should not prevent thousands of EU and British citizens from returning to their respective countries.
It is reported that the above-mentioned recommendation of the European Commission is only a unified proposal at the EU level.
Countries’ border control is not bound by this recommendation, and each country has the right to implement its own border control policy.
