U.S. To Lift Travel Restrictions for Vaccinated Foreign Travelers November 8
The White House reported that starting on November 8 the COVID-19 travel restrictions will be lifted. This ends a historic ban on travel that barred much of the world from entering the US for around 21 months. This restriction kept millions of visitors from China, Mexico, Brazil, and Europe out of the United States amid the pandemic. Starting November 8, the US will allow fully vaccinated foreign air travelers from the 26 Schengen countries in Europe, Great Britain, Ireland, Iran, Brazil, South Africa, India, and China.
This new policy will apply to both international air and land travel. Foreign national travelers to the U.S. will need to show both proof of vaccination as well as a negative COVID-19 test before boarding their flight. Foreign national travelers crossing a land border will not need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The new rules do not require foreign visitors or Americans entering the country to go into quarantine.
