The Council of the European Union has initiated a written procedure on a non-binding list of 15 countries whose citizens will be allowed entry into from July 1.

"The written procedure on the non-binding list of 15 countries whose nationals can travel to the EU as of 1 July ha[s] finally been initiated by the council," Europe Editor for Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) Rikard Jozwiak said on Twitter on June 29, according to the Ukrainian-registered European Pravda media outlet.

All details of the decision are not yet known, however, according to the reporter's sources, the approved list has 15 countries, including Georgia, Serbia, and Montenegro.

The written procedure is used when there is a sufficient number of votes for the wording of a decision, and circumstances require its approval as soon as possible, without waiting for a formal meeting.

Earlier, Euronews reported that the full list of countries whose nationals will be allowed to enter Europe according to the approved draft is as follows: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay, and China (the latter is subject to confirmation of reciprocity). Brazil, the United States, and Russia are not on the approved list.
