US to Lift Travel Ban for Vaccinated International Visitors

The White House announced today a new international air travel system starting in early November. All foreign nationals traveling to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination before boarding a U.S. bound plane.

This will end several travel bans that started early last year that restrict travel by non-citizens who have in the prior 14 days been in the United Kingdom, European Union, China, India, Iran, Republic of Ireland, Brazil and South Africa.

“Most importantly, foreign nationals flying to the U.S. will be required to be fully vaccinated,” said White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeff Zients in a press briefing. The new system would include stepped up testing, contact tracing and masking, officials said.

“This new system allows us to implement strict protocols to prevent the spread of COVID from passengers flying internationally into the United States or requiring adult foreign nationals traveling to the United States be fully vaccinated. It’s based on public health. It requires fully vaccinated individuals. And so this is based on individuals rather than a country-based approach, so is a strong system,” Zients said, as reported by ABC News.

The specific vaccines that qualify a traveler as “fully vaccinated” will be determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to Jeff Zients, the White House coronavirus response coordinator.

The White House will also tighten testing rules for unvaccinated American citizens. They will need to be tested within a day before returning to the U.S., as well as after they get back in the country.

    • I wish they make a fully vaccinated US travels return home to US. I am in Seoul, South Korea, and it takes 170,000 krw (about $150) to get a document that US accepts. Test is free but the document costs. You have to go to a few limited designated place to get this document.
