The European Commission has announced the date of the opening of the EU’s external borders

The European Commission will recommend that EU member states start opening their external borders to travelers from outside the bloc on 1 July. 
This was announced on Wednesday by European Foreign Minister Josep Borrell, the AFP reported
The decisions on lifting the restrictions imposed to slow the spread of the coronavirus will be made by the national capitals, but Borrel said that this week Brussels would propose a "gradual and partial lifting" of the bans. 
EU member states have begun relaxing temporary restrictions on border crossings within the bloc, but have called for continued restrictions on the entry of third-country nationals after 15 June. 
On the past weekend, the interior ministers of 27 Member States agreed to coordinate the gradual resumption of tourist reception from outside the Schengen area, Britain and the EU. 
But EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ilva Johansson said last week that not all countries had agreed on the criteria for reopening the borders, with some rushing more than others. 
For example, Greece, whose economy is heavily dependent on tourism, has already announced that it will reopen its borders to a number of countries, including non-EU countries, on June 15
