Schengen Area

The EU Council has opened the Schengen Area borders to the residents of the following countries: Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand, and has advised European governments to do the same for their own respective borders. This means that the borders of the countries within the Schengen Area are not automatically opened to this list of countries, and while some governments listened to the Council's advice, others preferred to remain closed.
