U.S. to lift travel ban on EU citizens

Washington has agreed with its EU counterparts to lift travel restrictions for vaccinated citizens, three senior EU officials told POLITICO.

EU ambassador to the U.S. Stavros Lambrindis also wrote on Twitter that he hoped there would be “a positive announcement soon” on the U.S. travel ban.

European Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton is meeting the White House’s COVID coordinator Jeffrey Zients in Washington Monday, and both sides are expected to make the announcement as early as today.
