IMPACT – HIGH
The European Commission has recommended that Schengen Member States and Schengen Associated States lift internal border controls and prolong the temporary restriction on non-essential travel into the EU until June 30. The European Commission has also set forth a plan to progressively lift the non-essential travel restriction.
Additional information: The travel ban was introduced in March and applied to all non-essential travel with several exceptions such as for healthcare workers, etc.
Analysis & Comments: Nationals of certain third countries, for which the ban on non-essential travel will be lifted, will be allowed to travel to the EU as of July 1. For nationals of other countries, for whom the travel ban will remain applicable, the additional exemption for highly qualified workers is expected to allow more travel options as of July 1. Employers can rearrange travel schedules of affected workers accordingly. Deloitte will continue following this matter and will provide updates as information becomes available. Please check Deloitte’s COVID-19 Digital Map, available here, for information on travel restrictions and immigration changes in other countries.
