The European Union (EU) is still applying the ‘ban’ on non-EU travelers that come from countries where the pandemic is still at high risk.
On June 1, the Netherlands removed the ban lift for travelers who come from India that was put out on April 26. The ban was initially imposed because due to the increase of Covid-19 cases in India after the second deadly wave of virus swept around the country.
The Indian embassy in Amsterdam came out with a tweet saying that ”As per the Dutch Government ban on passenger flights from India that had come into force on April 26, 2021, has been lifted w.e.f 01 June 2021.”
However, despite all this, the EU ban on non-EU travelers for countries where the virus situation is still at high risk, still stands.
Previously on April 26, the Netherlands came out with a decision on banning flights from India since ”the epidemiological situation on the ground (in India) is very serious…”
After that, the Netherlands Embassy in India posted a tweet in April 2021 saying that the ”ban on passenger flights from India has been extended until June 1, 2021.”
