      EU removes Japan, 5 other countries from safe travel list, adds Uruguay

      The European Union on Thursday removed Japan and five other countries from its list of safe travel destinations, meaning visitors or people returning from those countries are likely to face tighter controls such as Covid-19 tests or quarantine, Reuters reported. Following a review, the governments of the EU's 27 member states agreed to drop Japan, along with Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Brunei and Serbia, the European Council said on Thursday. Uruguay has been added to the list.
