Five Americans who attempted to enter Italy after flying on a private jet to the island of Sardinia were rejected because of the EU's coronavirus restrictions.




The EU has opened its borders to some countries, but the US has been excluded due to its high coronavirus rates.




The travellers eventually flew out of the airport 14 hours after they first landed, CNN reported.




But local officials seemed to regret the rule's implications, claiming it could make the region look bad.




Italy was once the worst-hit country but appears to have controlled its outbreak, while the US is still dealing with virus peaks.

Five Americans were denied entry to Italy after flying from Colorado due to the European Union's ban on American visitors due to the US's high volume of coronavirus cases.
The Americans attempted to land in Cagliari Elmas airport on the island of Sardinia on Wednesday, CNN reported. A police spokesperson said they had to leave and did so 14 hours after landing, according to CNN.
But while applying the EU law, regional officials appeared to regret the effect for Americans. Flight durations from Colorado to Italy start at approximately 15 hours.
