The European Commission again has requested its Member States to extend the travel restrictions for all non essential travels to the ‘EU+ area’, which includes all Schengen Member States, including Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, and Romania, and the 4 Schengen Associated States, which are Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.
The Netherlands government has adopted this request and has extended the travel restrictions until 1 July 2020 for all non essential travellers.
The travel restrictions for all ‘non essential travelers’ are for citizens that are not nationals of EU Member States, Schengen States and the United Kingdom.
After 1 July 2020 the European Commission recommends to extend the group of travellers with an ‘essential function’. This group should also include highly skilled migrants if their employment is necessary from an economic perspective and the work cannot be postponed or performed abroad.
Also the travel restrictions will be lifted as of 1 July 2020 for citizens of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia.
