Due to fears of the Indian variant spreading across Europe, Brussels have delayed the decision to allow British holidaymakers to the continent for at least ten days.
EU ambassadors have refused to allow tourism to be opened up again as the continent are watching the rise of the Indian variant in the UK, despite Boris Johnson saying “the data is still ambiguous.”
An EU diplomat said, “A string of concerning developments in the UK is not helping.
“There’s the Indian variant turning into dominant variant and rising incidence rates, as well as UK debate on consequences from all of that.”
Another diplomatic insider added, “The UK has an upward trend so will not be proposed to be added to the list.”
Despite the European wide ban in allowing British holidaymakers, Spain, Portugal and Greece are appealing for Brits to visit for holidays.
Every two weeks travel restrictions are reviewed, which the earliest that Brits could legally travel to Europe, under EU regulations, could be 14 June.
