EU Sets New List Of Approved Travel Partners. The U.S. Isn't On It

The European Union has decided on its first list of approved travel partners, as part of its reopening of external borders. Here, people sit in a terrace bar at the beach in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, earlier this month, when many internal travel restrictions were lifted.

The European Union won’t allow U.S. travelers when the bloc begins opening its external borders this week. It will admit foreigners from only 15 countries — including China and South Korea.
