Joan Mateu/APThe European Union will bar U.S. travelers from visiting when the bloc begins opening its external borders on July 1. EU ambassadors endorsed a list of 15 travel partners on Tuesday, including South Korea, Japan and China – countries that were hit early by the pandemic but have been able to bring the coronavirus under control.

The U.S. wasseen as a longshotto make the travel list, which requires that only those countries with epidemiological situations — taking into account both the infection rate and current trends — that are equal to or better than the EU's can send tourists and other nonessential visitors to the open-border region.

When the EU began discussing its travel list earlier this month, many U.S. states were seeing a worrying spike in cases — a trend that has only worsened.As ambassadors at the European Council debated the final list, the U.S.for daily new cases, reporting 39,972 new cases on June 26, compared with its previous mark of 36,291 cases, which was set on April 24.

Another factor: The EU list requires reciprocal easing of travel bans – and the U.S.from European countries. China's inclusion on the travel list is predicated on its removal of EU members from its own travel restrictions.They've done it! Border battle over.

Citizens from these countries can come to the EU tomorrow: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, S Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay & China when it drops restrictions on EU nationals. Read more: NPR »

Is that racist? We were condemned by them for trying to have stricter cotrolls over our borders for safety purposes. And with almost 4,700 new cases in Arizona we’re gonna continue to be banned from visiting states within our own country. dougducey opened too soon now we’re closing back up. 🤦🏻‍♀️MaskUpAZ 😷 ArizonaCovid19

I hope canada continues to close its borders until united states have the same number of delicine as canada. Dear France 🇫🇷 Take me back Signed, Statue of Liberty 🗽 ABSOLUTE wisdom trishgreenhalgh Does this apply re entry into the UK as well? The scene where the protagonist finally leaves the antagonist to die alone...

Nice job, prezidunt fuck up! JanMcVicker Can EU citizens living in the US still travel to EU, or just by living in USA they are restricted? lol 'grabble' personally I'd have chose flounder/wallow/blunder European travel as a young person was a defining personal experience. But understand their concern to keep out those who 'bring disease ..' to paraphrase a very unstable American resident.

Can't say I blame them. I was going to celebrate my 50th bday in Portugal. Now I simply hope Delta doesn’t go bankrupt so I can spend the credit. This year I will delay my bday by 1 year. LittleDonnie will be VERY MAD! Another way US has hurt itself! Airlines are fuming at Americans for cavalier attitude toward the 🦠!

I mean, just because we're stupid doesn't mean they have to also be stupid and let us take our idiocracy over there to infect and kill their people. I can't say I blame them at all. See, you’re alone, all by yourselves...by your own fault. EU allows only citizens from civilized and rational countries inside their borders. We do the same in Canada. We all look with sadness and incredulity at what Americans are doing to themselves, their country and the World.

Clearly, trump was projecting when he ranted about “shithole countries” JonathanLanday Because they actually care about keeping the EU safe, rather than appeasing T🇷🇺ump, unlike our own Senate Rs. JustinTrudeau better keep our border locked down too So glad I still have my French citizenship. Can you blame them

Removam o strike seus lixos! Não adianta ficar postando sem parar. Os comentários não vão parar tbm! Vocês mexeram com BR. AGORA SE PREPAREM MAKE AMERICA BANNED AGAIN! Trump voters don’t care about this either. They’ve never left their counties. OMG. I’m heart broken. Can’t travel to Europe. With Trump's help, the USA has 'Become So Great Again' they should just stay home and enjoy the riots.

That’s fine.... I guess we are stuck Home. Who can blame them....we are in a pandemic with no leadership, abandoning are allies and embracing dictators Are our European friends about to give us Americans a well deserved spanking? Fucking lies remember Sweden’s gross negligence in not quarantining? Oh yeah they don’t have a non/globalist president.

I get it, but I am so pissed at every idiot in my country that could not follow the guidance by the Scientists. So, I guess I’m definitely missing my great aunts 100th birthday in England! Fuck you realDonaldTrump! I didn't notice it in the article, but does it say the timeline of this ban? I know they're checking it/revising it every two weeks, but there's no timeline.

This is the winning we were promised and deserve.

United States not on EU's 'safe' travel list, diplomats sayThe United States is not on a 'safe list' of destinations for non-essential travel due to be unveiled by European Union governments later on Tuesday, three diplomats said. It's heartbreaking, but until this country figures out how to function properly, here we are. Stupid president. no wonder i’m shocked...

American Airlines Will Start Booking Flights To Full Capacity Next WeekSo much for promoting social distancing at a time when the U.S. sets records for new reported COVID-19 cases. noted. Obviously AA is very concerned about people's safety. Oh, wait, no. Their bottom line. Since everyone is breathing recycled air on a plane, does it even matter how full the plane is or isn’t? (I’m actually curious, not trying to be snarky!) 14 days later... AmericanAir

The world isn't laughing at America -- it's pitying usOne of Trump's big election lines in 2016 was that the world was laughing at America. That wasn't true, but now the reality is worse: A bemused world is pitying America. Consider this selection of global headlines this week, compiled by Meanwhile producer Shelby Rose, as the coronavirus resurged across the US. StCollinson husca An now there laughing at trump StCollinson husca CNN ....image of US worldwide is getting better even in Europe despite leftist european press and despite CNN ....thats why StCollinson husca Pity and fear…
