Fully vaccinated travelers will be able to travel to the USA again this year in November.
The Biden administration announced yesterday that, starting in November, it will lift the ban on visitors from 33 countries, including those from the U.K. and EU, for travelers who are vaccinated.
Vaccinated travelers will also have to test negative for the virus within three days of departure, and unvaccinated Americans returning to the United States will be required to test negative within one day of leaving and again after arriving.
There will be a few exemptions to the vaccination requirements for foreign visitors, such as for children not yet eligible to be vaccinated, according to a person familiar with the White House’s strategy, but full details of the policy have not yet been released.
It is still not clear which vaccines will be accepted under the new U.S. entry system, and whether COVID-19 vaccines that haven’t been approved in the U.S. will pass. That decision will be taken soon by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
