The President of EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen says it is time to revive EU tourism industry for cross-border friendships to rekindle.

 This development was disclosed after Commission recommended easing restrictions on non-essential travel from overseas.

The plan is to make sure anyone who has received the last dose of an EU-approved vaccine at least two weeks beforehand will be permitted to travel.

Von der Leyen in a tweet stated: “Time to revive EU tourism industry and for cross-border friendships to rekindle – safely,”

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that the EU currently only allows non-essential travel from seven countries.

But the proposals will also contain an “emergency brake” allowing member states to limit travel quickly in response to new variants or a deteriorating health situation in non-EU countries, BBC reports.

This would be reviewed every two weeks, as a discussion on the plans begins on Tuesday.

The EU has gone ahead to announce plans for a digital certificate, which would cover anyone who is either vaccinated against Covid-19, has a negative test or has recently recovered.
