Sources say that the Biden administration eyes mid-May to begin relaxing Covid-19 travel restrictions. The Biden administration is looking toward the middle of May to relax restrictions on travel across the borders with Mexico and Canada and on inbound international travel from the U.K., Europe and Brazil, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
“There is going to be a sea change in mid-May when vaccines are more widely available to everyone,” according to one senior administration official.
In the meantime, officials have suggested President Biden and his Covid-19 task force need more time to feel comfortable reopening borders and increasing the level of air traffic from overseas.
Unfortunately closing borders around the world didn't stop the virus. The US borders have been closed for a year now, and it would be good news if borders would finally open again.
But many questions have to be answered. Will the US reopen only for tourist who have been vaccinated already? What about the children then which until now did not receive the vaccine?
Will the EU also open the borders for the US (we doubt), even though they do a terrible job with the vaccination?
