It was agreed on Wednesday that borders will reopen to tourists who have received their Covid-19 vaccine.
The only condition will be that the vaccines that have been administered have the approval of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
These will be Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen.
Children will also be able to travel with vaccinated parents.
This new measure will potentially allow Britons that have had their vaccine, to travel across Europe and go on holiday this summer with no restrictions.
As well as agreeing on a policy for the fully vaccinated, EU ambassadors also approved the proposal to loosen the criteria to determine “safe” countries.
The UE is expected to release a new list this week.
Britain would be one of the countries that meet the new criteria although the new Indian Covid-19 variant could make things more difficult.
Visitors will be allowed to come from countries with an incidence rate of below 75 cases per 100,000 people.
A decision on whether to add the UK and other countries to the EU’s “safe list” will be made on Friday.
Under current restrictions, people from only eight countries can enter the EU on holiday, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated.
Those include Australia, Israel or Singapore.
Therefore, each one can decide whether to maintain or impose additional restrictions on visitors.
Portugal, for example, decided to lift the travel ban on British tourists on Monday.
Last year the EU imposed strict measures to contain Covid-19 outbreaks, but countries that are highly dependent on tourism have been pushing for the restrictions to be eased.
She also said that they shouldn’t forget about those who haven’t had the vaccine yet.
“We shouldn’t discriminate against those yet to be vaccinated or are unable to get the jab.
“Less than a third of the UK population are fully vaccinated, so we must allow those who aren’t the opportunity to travel to the EU with a negative Covid-19 test.”
