The temporary restrictions for other third-country nationals remain in place until 15 September 2020 inclusive. Family members of a citizen of the European Union, the United Kingdom, San Marino, Andorra, Monaco and the Vatican/Holy See, as well as of the other states parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area and of the Swiss Confederation with a right of residence in one of the above-mentioned member states are not affected by this measure.
