    The European Union plans to open its doors this summer to U.S. tourists who’ve been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, the New York Times reported, citing the head of the bloc’s executive body.

    The change, which would come under certain conditions, would end the bloc’s more than one year ban of nonessential travel from most countries to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

    The latest move came after the “huge progress” of U.S. vaccinations and as talks advanced on both sides on the proof of immunity for visitors, allowing the governing body of the bloc to recommend a change in policy, according to the newspaper.

    “The Americans, as far as I can see, use European Medicines Agency-approved vaccines,” Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, was cited by the paper as saying. “This will enable free movement and the travel to the European Union.”
