Travel awareness regarding E.U. entry restrictions

On Monday, the European Union recommended that its 27 member states reimpose travel restrictions on travelers coming from the United States. The guidance is non-binding and up to each member state to decide which restrictions to impose.

At this time, the focus remains on vaccination and travelers may be expected to show proof of an E.U. approved vaccine which includes Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson. Additionally, travelers should be prepared to show a negative PCR test. These restrictions will vary by country and be subject to change at any time.

Vanderbilt travelers should be monitoring the U.S. Embassy COVID-19 information page for any country they plan to travel to. Travelers should also stay in touch with the Office of Global Safety for updates related to specific entry and exit requirements.
