The US will drop its international travel ban for fully vaccinated foreigners from Nov. 8, a White House official said.
The Biden administration, which is expected to make an official announcement on Friday, is lifting travel restrictions for those arriving in the US at land borders and via air, an official told Reuters.
Non-US citizens from 33 countries, including China, India, Brazil and most of Europe, have been banned from entering the US for much of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The White House revealed last month that restrictions would be lifted for air travelers, but they did not disclose an exact date at the time.
International travelers will need to show proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test before boarding a flight. Those arriving at land borders, however, won’t need to show proof of a negative test. (Read more from “U.S. To Drop COVID International Travel Ban – Here’s the Catch” HERE)
