Restriction of non-essential travel prolonged

In the light of the COVID-19 emergency, on 16th March 2020 the European Commission invited all Schengen Member States and the Schengen Associated States to adopt a temporary restriction on non-essential travel from third Countries into the EU+ area until 15 May 2020.

The above mentioned restriction on non-essential travel from third Countries into the EU+ area has been prolonged by another 30 days, at least until 15th June 2020. Any further prolongation of this period should be assessed in the coming weeks, based on the development of the epidemiological situation, both inside and outside the EU.
