The EU has named 14 countries whose citizens are deemed "safe" to be let in from 1 July, despite the pandemic - but the US, Brazil and China are excluded

Those named include Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco and South Korea.

The EU is ready to add China if the Chinese government offers a reciprocal deal for EU travellers.

There were splits between those such as Spain, preferring to play safe because they have been hit so hard by Covid-19 and others like Portugal, which depends on tourism but are less scarred by the virus.
