France is expected to lift its entry ban on South Korea and a number of other non-European Union countries deemed "safe" travel destinations amid the onoing COVID-19 pandemic.

An official of the South Korean Embassy in Paris revealed Thursday the French government decided to lift the ban and will soon make an announcement.

The planned move will allow visa-free entry of Korean nationals visiting France for short-term trips.

This comes after the European Council adopted a recommendation Tuesday on the gradual lifting of the temporary restriction on non-essential travel into the region.

It released a list of 14 countries, including South Korea, whose citizens will be allowed to enter the EU's 27 member states and four other nations in Europe's border-free Schengen travel zone.

The list of approved countries includes Algeria, Australia, Georgia, Montenegro, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.
