The U.S. will ease covid-19 travel restrictions for international visitors who are vaccinated against Covid-19 in November, including those from the U.K. and EU, the White House said Monday.
Noncitizens visiting the United States will have to show proof of vaccination and a negative Covid-19 test taken within three days of departure, said Jeff Zients, who is leading the nation’s Covid response efforts for the White House.
“They must show proof of vaccination prior to boarding a U.S.-bound airplane,” Zients said during a press briefing.
Airlines and other travel industry groups have clamored for the U.S. to lift the restrictions for months. The Trump administration had first issued the rules, which now apply to more than 30 countries, in March 2020. President Joe Biden upheld those rules in January, shortly after taking office.
The British Government has announced a move to remove the traffic light system in favour of a simplified approach for international travel, which comes into effect on 4 October 2021.
A red list of countries will remain with travel restrictions still in place, but we are slowly starting to see more destinations beginning to re-open for travel and testing requirements being reduced for fully vaccinated travellers.
