The EU has released a list of 14 countries whose nationals are allowed to visit the region and only four African countries are included on that list.
The 14 countries whose nationals are allowed to visit the EU are: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.
The four African countries are: Algeria, Morocco, Rwanda and Tunisia.
The list does not include the two largest economies in the world, China and USA.
The EU is ready to add China, however, if the Chinese government offers a reciprocal deal for EU travellers, diplomats say.
Many border controls have been lifted for EU citizens travelling inside the bloc. Rules for UK travellers are part of the current Brexit negotiations.
But UK nationals are still to be treated in the same way as EU citizens until the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December, the EU Commission says.
So during this period UK nationals and their family members are exempt from the EU’s temporary travel restriction.
