U.S Eases Travel Restrictions for Vaccinated Foreign Travelers in November

The Index Today

The U.S is expecting to ease travel restrictions for visitors coming in from 33 listed countries including China, Brazil, India and Europe in November. Travelers who are fully vaccinated will be allowed entry as pandemic restrictions are gradually coming down.
The new announcement was made by White House official Jeff Zients who previously said that covid restrictions won’t be lifted amid rising number coronavirus infections. The US has been among the last few countries to keep travel restrictions in place, barring visitors from entering the country. This has had a negative impact of visits for family or businesses in the country.
However, with new plans underway, the country will remove strict entry requirements and will open its borders to fully vaccinated travelers. A definite date for the new rule to be implemented has not yet been announced but officials suspect it could be early in November.
On the other hand, the U.S will continue its pandemic-related restrictions at its Mexico and Canadian border. This means nonessential travel such as tourism will be completely barred. There is no news regarding when border restrictions will will ease up.
According to Airlines for America, international air travel was hit hard during the pandemic, falling by 43%. British Airways is hopeful that the new ease in travel will help boost travel between both nations and expand trade.
