The European Union will allow visitors from 15 countries starting July 1 but will not admit those from the United States, Russia, or Brazil.

The list of approved countries included Australia, Canada and New Zealand, while travelers from China will be permitted if China reciprocates

Many view the decision as a strong rebuke of Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Admittance will be determined the traveler’s country of residence, not nationality, officials said.  The policy will not be binding on the bloc’s 27 nations.

The list of safe or approved nations will be reviewed every two weeks.
