American tourists who have been fully vaccinated will soon be able to travel to Europe as tourists. According to officials, this change will happen as soon as this summer.

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen notes at least 27 EU nations will be accepting Americans who have received vaccines recognized by the European Medicines Agency. Some of these approved vaccines include Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, which are currently three of the major vaccines that have been introduced in the U.S.

“This will enable free movement and travel to the European Union,” says von der Leyen. There isn’t a precise date for when the EU will accommodate these U.S. travelers, though, and it appears governments are still trying to figure out how certain countries will be screening vaccinated individuals. Currently, The International Air Transport Association is working on an app that will enable travelers to show their test and vaccination results, so this is a likely solution.

The U.S. and U.K. have one of the highest vaccination rates among major countries around the world so far, a good indication that the plan is likely to proceed.
