The EU has named 14 countries whose citizens are deemed "safe" to be let in from 1 July, despite the pandemic - but the US, Brazil and China are excluded.
The EU issued the finalised list of "acceptable countries", based on how well the nations are faring in handling the covid-19 pandemic, after a delay of several days due to some EU member states seeking more time to decide.
The other third countries where restrictions were lifted include Algeria, Georgia, Montenegro, Morocco, Rwanda, Serbia, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.
In addition, China could be included if it reciprocates by allowing travelers from the European Union.
The preliminary lists of countries, which were published earlier by some media outlets, did not include Russian Federation, the United States, and Brazil.
Restrictions on non-essential travel to the EU countries, which has been banned since mid-March, is expected to be gradually lifted from July 1 allowing visitors from countries with an epidemiological situation similar to that of the EU to enter the EU territory.
While Portugal and Greece, whose economies are highly dependent on tourism, have called for more countries on the list.
