U.S. travelers reportedly may be required to submit health information from vaccine cards prior to travel though it’s unclear how the procedure would be carried out since there is no official health travel app or digital health passport. Travelers who have not been vaccinated will be allowed to travel with a negative COVID-19 test result.
The eased restrictions would enable millions of people to travel to countries throughout Europe without having to quarantine as summer vacations take flight. Under the current guidelines, only countries with COVID-19 infection rates that are lower than 25 per 100,000 people are allowed into Europe. Select countries, including Greece, Iceland and Italy have allowed Americans to travel, however, many European countries have remained closed to nonessential travelers.
