US to lift travel ban for vaccinated foreign travelers on November 8th


The White House announced on Friday that starting Nov. 8, international travelers who are completely vaccinated against Covid-19 would be allowed to enter the United States, ending a restriction on visitors from the EU, the United Kingdom, and other countries.

Last month, the White House said that the travel restrictions, which prevented most non-U.S. citizens who had recently visited Europe, Brazil, South Africa, and other countries, would be lifted in early November. The measures were first put in place by the Trump administration early in the pandemic to slow the spread of Covid-19, and they were later extended by the new Biden government in the winter. Visitors must be properly vaccinated against Covid, according to the Biden administration.
