Investing.com – Countries in Europe plan to ban travel from third-party countries to the passport-free travel zone in an effort to curtail the spread of Covid-19, the Financial Times reported Monday.
All non-essential visits to the Schengen area will be stopped, but citizens of the area of 26 countries will be exempted, the FT said, citing people familiar with the proposal.
The Schengen area includes the European Union, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Ireland, Cyprus, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria will be invited to participate, but the status of the U.K. was unclear, the FT reported.
