EU has lifted travel ban on flights from southern African countries

The European Union has ended the travel ban that was imposed against flights from southern African countries over a month ago. was introduced in a bid to prevent and control the spread of the Omicron variant within the EU. However, since the Omicron variant now accounts for the majority of infection cases within the Member States, the entry ban has been seen as unnecessary, Schengen Visa Info reported.

The decision to lift the ban against the southern African countries was announced yesterday, on January 10, by the French EU presidency. The latter revealed that all 27 Member States have agreed to lift the travel ban and resume air travel with southern African countries.

Nonetheless, it has been emphasised that travellers from southern African countries will still be subject to other entry measures that apply to other nationals, such as presenting a vaccination or recovery certificate. Some countries also require a negative COVID-19 test that was taken before entry.
