The EU is adding eleven countries including Canada to the bloc's approved travel list, under a decision Wednesday by EU ambassadors, APA reports citing Politico.eu.
The bloc last year halted non-essential travel from non-EU countries due to the coronavirus. The safe travel list, while non-binding, indicates which countries that restriction should be lifted for.
Alongside Canada, the ambassadors agreed to add Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brunei, Jordan, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, Qatar and Saudi Arabia to the list.
Once again, the U.K. did not make the list amid concerns about the spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus.
Earlier this month, the Council decided travel from six other countries, including the U.S., should be eased.
