At their meeting in Brussels, the ambassadors of the EU member states examined the list of countries for which they might recommend the lifting of travel restrictions within the Schengen area.
The list, which was circulated on 1 July, is reviewed every two weeks on the basis of the latest epidemiological data.
Although Serbia was among the 15 countries for which the lifting of restrictions on travel to the EU had been recommended since 1 July, the EU Council decided on 15 July to remove the Balkan country from this safe-list due to the worsening epidemiological situation.

Now, in the light of the latest data from Serbia, it is highly unlikely that the EU Member States will put Serbia back on the above-mentioned list, i.e. allow Serbian citizens to travel to the EU, at least until mid-August, reports Tanjug news agency.
Yesterday, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić said with high certainty that the EU would not put Serbia back on the list of countries considered safe due to the critical epidemiological situation.
