The United States requires vaccinations for foreign visitors

The new system opens air travel to vaccinated foreign nationals from the countries.

Biden administration declared that they would require all international travelers coming to the USA to get the vaccine and tested for Covid-19 under a new system that will open-airplanes travel to vaccinated people from dozens of countries for the first time since the start. Epidemic days.

From early November, White House coordinator Jeffrey Zents said that foreign nationals would be allowed to travel to the United States if they have been fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination before getting a flight to the USA.

This requirement will ease travel restrictions that have limited entry to the United States in many cases to non-citizens who have recently been in 33 countries, including several European countries and the United Kingdom, regardless of vaccination status. But for travelers outside of those countries, the new system will set stricter requirements that could drag those who live in vaccine-deficient countries.

“We will move to this more stringent global system so that we will have a consistent approach across all countries, and it will require foreign nationals to be vaccinated, to prove that they have been vaccinated, and then to undergo testing and contact tracing cohorts,” colleagues said.

He said the United States would also begin setting up additional testing requirements. Foreign nationals must be tested three days before departure to the United States and show a negative test. Unvaccinated Americans will have to be tested within one day of departure and be asked to test again upon arrival.

The CDC will also require airlines to collect information on each passenger bound for the United States, including their phone number and email address, to help public health officials trace contacts.
