The European Union has made a great contribution to the peace and stability of the world. Through common sense, Europe helped keep war away from its neighbors while building friendships across the globe. Now, it is time to help our Northern friends understand that friendship doesn’t come for free. The European Union is in need of your help to survive the economic crisis. But is there still a travel ban to Europe? The answer is “No”.
The European Union can take the help of its member countries to solve this problem. It has already accepted the principles of open travel but not the open-borders principles. American tourists can now travel to Europe for the very first time in over a year. However, flights will only just fly in one direction with restrictions imposed on other directions. Europeans are still banned from traveling to the United States under certain restrictions. It is not as if Americans don’t know any better.
The European Union is doing everything it can to fight the global pandemic flu. There are no travel restrictions so those who travel from America or other areas of North America will be able to come here. Travelers to Europe should consider vaccines and consider the possibility of receiving a vaccine related to the 2021 flu strain. If you have un-vaccinated or immunized status in any country, then you should consider visiting another country that does allow entry without restrictions. It is better to be safe than sorry.
The ban on travel to certain parts of Europe is actually in place due to health concerns. There is an increased risk of infection from illness during the summer months due to warmer temperatures. Those who do travel often find that the cost of travel causes them to break their travel plans.
The new travel restrictions are not being implemented until later in the summer. Some speculate that it will force the airlines and airports to be more rigid with those who overuse their immunizations. People who already have tickets could face fines if they cannot show proof of getting vaccinated. Many people worry about how long these measures will last.
Some of the symptoms associated with the 2021 swine flu strain can return in the near future. Travelers will need to be careful when traveling to any of the countries affected by the travel restrictions. Getting a visa from the United States is easier than a visa to any of the European countries. Visa requirements vary according to the country.
Many travelers are concerned about how long the travel ban will last. The last few years saw an increase in the number of visa requests from visa overstays. Many travelers see this as a good opportunity to get a visa, only to find that once their visa expires, they can’t return to the US. This issue is similar to those from previous years where visa overstay restrictions were in place.
Visa overstays of five days or less are exempt from the travel ban. Many visa holders from Asia and other areas of Europe have already obtained their visa cards and can freely travel to the United States without waiting on their application to be approved. Those who are traveling to the United Kingdom will now need to wait until their applications have been approved before they can leave the country. There is no word on whether the ban is temporary or permanent.
While the US and some other countries temporarily banned travel to certain regions of the world including Iran and Syria, others have remained open. Travellers to these countries should check out the travel restrictions for these two countries before traveling. Some of these areas were previously designated as zones of concern by the United Nations. Turkey and Greece are two of the worst-affected countries with no travel restrictions in place. The US has advised citizens traveling to these countries to take all precautions and remain vigilant while they are there.
The United Kingdom has implemented a temporary visa ban for citizens of countries that were hit by the travel ban. This includes Turkey and Greece. Travellers who are traveling from one of the above countries need to apply for a visa before they can enter the United Kingdom. This is different to a temporary visa ban and is not a permanent ban. As long as the UK has not lifted their existing travel ban on people from one of the above four countries they will be able to travel to the country. However this will only be after they have gained access to the visa requirements for the respective countries.
The United States Department of State issued a statement confirming that US citizens traveling to Turkey would be allowed to remain. However, citizens of the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Canada, Sweden, and other European countries are restricted from traveling to or within Turkey. The State department stressed that travelers should apply for United Kingdom resident visas before traveling to Greece and Italy and other places that had been affected by the travel ban. It is expected that all visa requirements will be lifted once the situation is fully stabilised.
