The European Union is revising today the list of countries whose citizens are free to enter the member states of the union and a draft of a new list is known, which again does not include Bosnia and Herzegovina, Klix.ba news portal reports.
The new list consists of only 11 countries, and it will be made official by Thursday afternoon. The list includes Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Tunisia and Uruguay.
Also, China is on the list, but it is conditioned by a reciprocal decision for EU citizens.
Due to the worsening situation in Algeria, this country was removed from the current list, which was adopted in mid-July.
Also, in addition to the fact that there is no Bosnia and Herzegovina, neither Serbia nor Montenegro have been returned to the list.
What is new is that the European Union will probably not revise the list again until the beginning of September, although it was originally planned to be done every 14 days.
The reason for this decision is the annual vacations in the EU institutions. As it is stated, there is a possibility that some countries will be removed from the list during August, provided that a radical deterioration of the situation is registered.
The list is not an obligation of the member states because countries like Italy and Belgium have not opened the borders for the mentioned countries from the list, while Croatia and Bulgaria allow BiH citizens to enter without a Croatian passport with a negative PCR test.
