Germany removes Serbia from list of risky countries
The new travel rules will take effect on Sunday
Due to the declining number of new cases of coronavirus, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) removed several countries from the list of risky countries, including Austria, the US, Canada, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Canada, Lebanon, Moldova, Ukraine and Cyprus.
In addition to Serbia, in the Western Balkans, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, and North Macedonia are no longer treated as risky countries.
Removing them from the list makes it easier to travel to Germany, that is, it removes all epidemiological "obstacles."
The new rules for travel will be in force from Sunday, RKI announced.
Declaring Serbia and other Western Balkan countries risk-free will have an impact on other EU countries, i.e. on Austria, which has decided to determine its rules for entering the country based on the list of the German institute.
