As Europe prepares to reopen its borders, Nigeria has been excluded from the list of countries whose travellers could be received on July 1.

The European Union released a list of 54 countries qualified for travels into Europe, Schengenvisainfo.com reports.

The EU Commission spokesman, Eric Mamer, in the statement released said citizens from Brazil, Qatar, the US and Russia would only be able to enter Europe at a later date when the situation in these countries improves.

He added that countries were selected based on health criteria.
