Based in a conference room in Brussels, officials are discussing who will be permitted to enter the EU on July 1 when the external borders of the bloc are set to open-and who will be barred. There are two lists, one for those approved and one for those not. From EU diplomatic sources, Euronews has obtained a full draft list of countries for which Europe's borders will be open, and can confirm what we announced on Wednesday that Brazil, Qatar, the US and Russia are not in fact on the approved list. Sources have also cast doubt on the July 1 border reopening date, suggesting that agreements will not be concluded on time. According to the draft list, the entire list of countries whose citizens will be permitted to join Europe shall be: Vatican City Monaco Montenegro Andorra Serbia Bosnia and Herzegovina Ukraine Albania Turkey Kosovo Democratic People's Republic of Korea Turkmenistan Vietnam China Thailand Myanmar Mongolia Japan South Korea Georgia Bhutan Lebanon Indonesia Uzbekistan India Tajikistan Kazakhstan Palau New Zealand Australia Dominica Bahamas Saint Lucia Uruguay Jamaica Cuba Guyana Paraguay Venezuela Nicaragua Costa Rica Canada Angola Tunisia Namibia Uganda Mozambique Mauritius Zambia Rwanda Ethiopia Morocco Algeria Egypt Diplomatic sources also pointed out to Euronews that there is disagreement among nations on the criteria to be used for this decision, with some claiming that COVID data is not reliable. We are calling for more information from the ECDC, the EU agency for disease prevention, the sources said, adding that the lists will be checked every two weeks. When releasing EU guidelines two weeks ago officials said the list would take into account the rate of infection in the countries concerned. The criteria are based on epidemiological data, and at the time we were told 47 countries were on the barred list with acceptable countries and 54 nations. There are now 54 on the appropriate draft list from our source in Brussels on Thursday, and it is clear that those numbers that continue to fluctuate.
