The White House announced that the U.S. is lifting COVID-19 travel restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers starting November 8, 2021. The announcement applies to both land borders and air travel.
The U.S. will admit fully vaccinated foreign air travelers from the 26 Schengen countries in Europe, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Greece, as well as Britain, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil. These travelers will be required to present proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test taken no more than 72 hours prior to flying.
Beginning November 8, the U.S. will also admit fully vaccinated foreign land travelers crossing into the U.S. from Canada or Mexico. Essential land travelers who were never banned from traveling into the U.S. will be need to be fully vaccinated by January 2022. Land travelers will not need to show a negative COVID test.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is in charge of determining which vaccines qualify. Currently, all FDA approved and authorized vaccines, as well as all vaccines recognized by the World Health Organization, will be accepted.
