Dominican citizens will be able to enter Schengeng countries as EU borders reopen

Dominica is among 54 countries that will be able to enter Schengen countries once EU borders open later this week.

Schengen refers to the EU passport-free zone that covers most of the European countries and allows a person to travel to any member country of the Schengen Area.

There are no border controls within the Schengen Zone.

Ahead of its official release, later this week, of the list which is expected to be implemented after July 1, EU officials said it will be updated according to the epidemiological situation and coronavirus response in each country, the ability to apply containment measures during travel, and whether or not that country has lifted travel restrictions towards the EU.

Antigua and Barbuda citizens have been excluded from a preliminary list.

Seven nations from the region, including Venezuela and St Lucia, will be able to gain entry.

    Stop all that saying, you taking ferry to French Islands to get travel out of the Caribbean. Please, advocate the leaders and politicians to develop Dominica especially working through ward getting an international airport. Dominica cannot be the only OECS country without an international airport.

    That’s very good news for PM Skerrit and his fake ambassadors of Land and Sea. Now they have a few countries, including the UK they can go to. That is sure not for native Dominicans since Skerrit still has us in covid-19 prison and cannot even go to Guadeloupe.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 8 Thumb down 8

    And how do we get to the Schengen countries if we cannot travel through Antigua or the USA. Obviously this good news is intended for non-native Dominicans, who got their passport through CBI.I suspect this news originating from CS Global.

      Guadaloupe is in EU (considered a part of France) with an international airport and flights to actual France. Technically.

        So are Martinique and St. Maarten (at least partly). The plane from the French Antilles will take To Paris Orly, which currently has no direct services to England. You could fly from Ft. De France to Barbados and connect from there, say with Virgin or BA direct to London.

        Guadeloupe and Martinique are French overseas territories but the are NOT part of the EU and as such are NOT included in the Schengen Agreement. The same is true for St. Martin and other French and Dutch overseas territories. As far as the rest of the EU is concerned this is not going to last for long. One or two more gangster being caught with Dominican passports ore even diplomatic passport and we find ourselves being blacklisted. All you better speak to you PM!

    I suppose that this means that ferry services can resume to allow us to travel to Martinique and Guadeloupe
