Thursday, the European Union has removed 18 countries, including Jordan, from the list of countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted, regardless of vaccination against coronavirus.

“Following a review under the recommendation on the gradual lifting of the temporary restrictions on non-essential travel into the EU, the Council updated the list of countries, special administrative regions and other entities and territorial authorities for which travel restrictions should be lifted. In particular Jordan and Namibia were removed from the list,” the European Council said in a press release.

The Arab countries included in the decision are Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Kuwait.

The list is updated every two weeks by the Council of the European Union.
