The European Union will propose a nine-month time limit on COVID-19 vaccine validity for travel into the bloc and will also suggest prioritizing vaccinated travelers, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday, citing a document.
The European Commission will recommend its member states continue to welcome travelers vaccinated with shots approved by the bloc, the report said, adding it will also suggest that countries reopen from Jan. 10 to people vaccinated with shots approved by the World Health Organization.
An announcement on the proposals, which cover travel from outside the EU, is expected later on Thursday, the report said.
