Beginning in early November, foreign nationals who wish to travel to the United States will be allowed to enter the country — if they can show proof that they have been fully vaccinated for Covid-19 and have also tested negatively for the virus within three days of their upcoming flight.
The travel bans, albeit necessary, have been in place for well over a year, not only separated families but negatively affected the tourism industry in the U.S., where international travel is key for business.
The Biden Administration announced it will be working with airlines in the coming weeks on how best to implement these new travel procedures. Travelers will also have to provide email addresses and phone numbers for enhanced contact tracing. The administration says this will help introduce stricter protocols to prevent the spread of COVID from passengers flying to the United States.
While this only applies to those flying into the United States, it does not apply to ground travel from Canada and Mexico.
Unvaccinated Americans will be allowed to travel back tot he states but will have to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test within one day of their flight.
