The U.S. will allow foreign travelers fully vaccinated to enter the country from November 8th
Xinhua News Agency, Washington, October 15 (Reporter Deng Xianlai and Xu Jianmei) The White House said on the 15th that the United States will allow foreign travelers who are fully vaccinated with the new crown vaccine to enter the country on international flights or through water and land ports from November 8.
White House Assistant Press Secretary Kevin Muñoz posted on social media that same day that the latest US government regulations on international travel will come into effect on November 8, and apply to passengers entering the country on international flights or through land and water ports.
According to US media reports, the White House will announce before November 8 the types of new crown vaccines that meet the requirements for entry vaccination, the "rare exceptions" and other details under which people who have not fully vaccinated can enter the United States.
The report quoted an unnamed official as saying that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has previously notified airlines that the new coronavirus vaccines that can be vaccinated by air passengers entering the U.S. include those approved and authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Organize emergency use of certified vaccines.
It is expected that the above standards will also apply to foreign travelers entering the United States through land and water ports.
The American Travel Association issued a statement on the same day to welcome this, and believes that this move is "critical" to the continued recovery of the U.S. tourism industry.
The White House announced on September 20 that the U.S. government will allow foreign travelers fully vaccinated to enter the country on international flights in early November, but they must present a certificate of fully vaccinated and a negative test for COVID-19 within 72 hours before departure.
On October 12, the U.S. Department of Land Security announced that it will allow passengers fully vaccinated to enter the U.S. from Canada and Mexico through water and land ports to conduct "non-essential activities" such as visiting relatives, friends, or tourism from November, but they must enter the country when entering the United States.
