The EU wants member states to ease travel restrictions for American tourists.
Countries should look at the "gradual lifting of the temporary restrictions on non-essential travel" from the US, the European Council said.
The decision is not binding, and it will be up to each member state - including Ireland - to decide for themselves.
The US joins the likes of Australia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea on the list.
Serbia, the Republic of North Macedonia and Serbia are other new additions.
China remains on the list, although it's "subject to confirmation of reciprocity".
Here, the Government expects to ease restrictions on international travel from July 19th, when Ireland's set to implement the EU Digital Green Certificate system.
That system will only apply for travel within the EU itself, but the Government says Ireland will "broadly align" to the EU approach to travel from other countries as well.
There will be an EU-wide "emergency brake" system, aimed at swiftly advising against travel to countries where COVID-19 variants of concern have emerged.
In the meantime, health officials here are continuing to urge people not to travel for non-essential reasons - particularly if they're not yet fully vaccinated.
