Which Countries Use the Euro in 2020? Map of the Eurozone. This Eurozone map and explainer article have been updated to July 2020. The article was originally published in June 2016, and the earliest version of the map appeared in a 2014 news article. Article by Caleb Centanni, with additional content by Evan Centanni.

Map of the EU shows What is the Eurozone? Officially called the “euro area”, the Eurozone is a nickname for the group of countries in Europe that share a single currency, called the euro. The euro currency is administered by the European Union (EU), but many countries in the EU don’t use the euro, and some countries outside the EU do use it. The European Central Bank, the governing financial body of the Eurozone, is headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany. Germany, along with eleven other EU countries, became a founding member of the Eurozone in 1999. Since then, eight more members have joined after meeting the five necessary economic criteria.

Map of the European Union member states countries highlights what has brought the total to nineteen Eurozone members, including all but eight of the 27 European Union member countries. Nine distant territories of Eurozone member countries – those that are considered part of the EU – are also part of the Eurozone. These territories (not pictured on the map) are the Portuguese islands of the Azores and Madeira; Spain’s Canary Islands; French Guiana in South America; the French island territories of Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Saint Martin in the Caribbean; and the French island territories of Mayotte and Réunion in the Indian Ocean.

The political map of EU and all other overseas territories of EU member countries are considered to be outside the EU. These non-EU territories are generally not part of the Eurozone either, but there are some exceptions. Which EU Countries Don’t Use the Euro? A total of eight European Union member countries aren’t in the Eurozone. At least, not yet: Three countries – Denmark, Bulgaria, and Croatia – are part of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM II), which ties members’ currency to the euro and is a necessary step towards joining the Eurozone. Denmark is allowed to opt out of adopting the euro, despite its ERM II membership, but Bulgaria and Croatia are expected to enter the Eurozone in 2023 or 2024.

How Croatia and Bulgaria enters in EU? Croatia and Bulgaria’s Entry into the ERM II. All members of the European Union were required by the Maastricht Treaty of 1992 to change to the euro after meeting the criteria. Both Denmark and the UK negotiated exemptions from the requirement later in that year (the UK later ended up leaving the EU altogether). Five other EU members – Sweden, Poland, Czechia, Hungary, and Romania – are still required to adopt the euro at some point in the future, but haven’t yet entered the ERM II.

Map of the EU shows Which Non-EU Countries and Territories Do Use the Euro.  There are four tiny countries outside the EU – Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, and Vatican City – that have monetary agreements allowing them to use the Euro as their official currency. Two other non-EU-members, Montenegro and the disputed Republic of Kosovo, have unilaterally adopted the euro without coming to any agreement with the European Central Bank. The EU has expressed its dissatisfaction with these unilateral adoptions, but the currency’s use in the two countries has gone forward anyway.

EU map shows that map of the EU of Europe shows the topic besides those six independent countries, four of the world’s dependent territories also use the Euro despite not being part of the EU. The Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, a UK territory on the island of Cyprus, have never been part of the EU, even when the UK was – but the UK has agreed for the country of Cyprus to be in charge of currency in the areas, meaning the Eurozone treats them as part of Cyprus.

Map of the EU

The map shows that the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has updated the maps of common restrictions of free movement in the European Union. It included the four Schengen Associates countries, and the UK who left the EU. It is mentioned in it’s first published them last week, on October 15.

The EU maps for COVID-19 are only one of the measures on which the Council has agreed on in order to preserve the right of European citizens. This map move and reside freely within the EU, which is not only an important driver of the block’s economy and it also is one of the achievements its citizens cherish most.

It is said “A well-coordinated, predictable and transparent approach to the adoption of restrictions on freedom of movement is necessary to prevent the spread of the virus, safeguard the health of citizens as well as maintain free movement within the Union, under safe conditions,”  the European Commission has pointed out proposing the new common travel restrictions.

The newly published European maps show that the situation in the EU. It is about the Coronavirus infections has worsened, and the numbers spiked up in several parts of Europe last week. The map also shows that even some territories where previously the situation was not very risky, it has worsened.

How do Common EU Maps Work?

The four common EU maps, on which the Council agreed on October 13, are published here. It shows every Thursday and show the following for each Member State:

  • Two-weeks notification rate, it also shows testing rate and test positivity
  • Two-weeks case notification rate which is actually per every 100,000 residents
  • Testing rates are shown per every 100,000 residents
  • Positivity rates is not done well here.

The maps are coloured and they are through a common code which the EU Commission has proposed to open the external border of the EU. It is on which the Council has agreed, as follows:

  • Green color – the 14-day notification rate is below 25. It also shows the test positivity rate below 4 per cent
  • Orange color  – the 14-day notification rate is actually lower than 50. The map here shows the test positivity rate is 4 per cent or more, or the 14-day notification rate is between 25 and 150. Not only that the map shows that the test positivity rate is lower than 4 per cent
  • Red color – the 14-day notification rate of this map is 50 or higher & the test positivity rate in the EU map is 4 per cent or higher. Beside this it shows the 14-day notification rate is above 150
  • Grey color – the testing rate of this map is lower than 300, or the map here shows there is insufficient information

Map of the EU and Austria

Map of the EU and Austria as the member of the European Union

Map of the EU and Austria as a member of the European Union painting by Gretchen Andrew

Austria is shown in the map of the EU and 20 years Austrian EU membership Austria’s membership in the European Union has had a decisive impact on the country’s European and foreign policy of the past 20 years and makes it possible to advocate Austrian concerns within the EU decision-making structures. Representatives of Austria act in the framework of co-determination in the European Council, the Council and its preparatory bodies; plus there are directly elected Austrian members of the European Parliament as well as Austrian representatives in the other EU institutions.

In the map of the EU comprehensive coordination of the Austrian positions is ensured by the consultation obligation defined in the Austrian Constitution, especially vis-à-vis the Parliament, the federal provinces and communities, the interest groups and the public. EU issues feature prominently on the daily agenda of Austria’s foreign policy; after all, it is important that Austrian interests and positions are pursued further on the European level in the framework of the Common Foreign and Security Policy.

Austria in the map of these EU issues include above all initiatives in the multilateral field, such as initiatives to protect civilians in armed conflicts, strengthening human rights and the rights of minorities, disarmament, arms control and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Austria held the EU Presidency in the second half of 1998 and the first six months of 2006. Twenty years after Austria’s accession to the European Union, numerous studies provide impressive proof that the Austrian economy profits significantly from its involvement in the growing internal market which is also reflected in the creation of jobs.

What is reflected in the map of Austria and also in the map of the EU is as some 70% of Austria’s foreign trade is with EU member states, the internal market means significant savings for the Austrian economy. Since our accession in 1995, exports have tripled and 13,000 new jobs have been created per year. There is no doubt that Austria’s economy would not have been able to benefit from the opportunities granted by the enlargement without its membership in the EU and without the accession to the Monetary Union and that it would also have been hit much harder by the consequences of the financial and economic crisis.

The map of the EU and map of Vienna is about the citizens, in particular, benefit from the numerous advantages and facilities that have become integral parts of our lives– travelling through a Europe without borders, studying in other member states in the framework of EU exchange programmes, benefits of the common currency and the right to settle in any EU member state (Europe of Citizens). AUSTRIA’S ACCESSION TO THE EU ON 1 JANUARY 1995 Austria’s accession to the European Union marked the completion of the process of Austria’s integration efforts which had started long before the submission of Austria’s application for EC membership by then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alois Mock, on 17 July 1989.

Austria as a member state of map of the EU was one of the founding members of the European Free Trade Area (EFTA), established by the Stockholm Convention which entered into force on 3 May 1960. The first closer economic ties to the states forming the European Economic Community (EEC) were established in 1973 when the free trade area between Austria and the EEC was set up. This bridge between the members of EFTA and the members of the EU proved successful because the EFTA states’ export business was granted largely unhindered access to the EC area in the industrial sector, it did not offer any perspective for more comprehensive relations.

The map of the EU follows the submission of Austria’s application for membership on 7 July 1989, the EC Council agreed to launch the accession process on 28 July 1989, with the formal membership negotiations starting on 1 February 1993. In 1989 the plan for the establishment of a European Economic Area presented by then President of the Commission, Jacques Delors provided for a close association between EFTA and the EEC. By the time the treaty establishing the European Economic Area was signed in Porto on 2 May 1992, Austria had already set itself the integration goal of full membership in the European Communities.

Map of the EU – when will EU opens external borders

“Map of the EU” – When will EU open external border after the COVID-19 pandemic

Map of the EU and COVID-19 is showing that Corona in Europe went to its highest position during the March of this year. It forced the European Commission for recommending the member states of the EU to shut down all EU ports for entering in non-EU or Schengen citizens.

After that the map of the EU indicates that one by one all EU member states and Schengen Associated countries started to close their border. Not only this some of they also resisted undertaking the measure at the starting.

At the starting they re-established the border control and it was under the law of Schengen Agreement. Later they closed the border for non-residents but they allowed the people of EU who had serious reason to visit EU. It is actually some of the medical and official reasons.

The number of infection was increasing from April and from May it was going down and the EU was thinking the reopening the borders and the removal of borders controls. At the time the EU Commission decided from 15 June of the same year about the closure of the external Schengen Area borders and the time will be extended the third country citizen may come inside or go to other countries to open their borders.

For map of the EU later around all the countries reopened that they would open their borders only for the travelers who will come from Schengen Area and also from non-Schengen states. Here the main condition was they should have lower infection rate. Some of the countries imposed quarantine or may have negative COVID-19 test results. But at the same time some others may permit the people to enter their territory without any restrictions.

Now you will get the complete list of opened countries for the people who wants to travel them. Here we have tried to mention the information chronologically.

On 7 July 2021

COVID-19 situation in the EU highlighted in the map of the EU shows that Germany removed the UK, India, Portugal, Russia and Nepal from its traveler list as these countries has more variant areas and risky for the citizens of Germany. They grouped them as high incidence areas. Beside this they also made a rule that whom they permitted to visit their country before will now shorten their visit and after 5 days of their visit they will have to prove COVID-19 negative in the test.

The map of the EU show that from now on the people related with vaccinating work in the Economic European Area (EEA) and the epidemiological safe other countries will visit Norway without entering quarantine at the end of July.

COVID-19 situation of EU On 7 July 2021

The map shows that Norway lifted its ban against the travel of EU countries Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Iceland and the UK. Beside this Norway also no longer advise against travel to travel some other countries like Israel, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Lebanon, Northern Macedonia, South Korea, Serbia, Taiwan, Singapore and the USA.
