US Lifts COVID19 Restrictions For Foreign Travellers

Biden Recovers From COVID-19
United States President, Joe Biden

United States has on Monday lifted its COVID-19 restrictions for travellers from a long list of countries.

Gatekeepers News reports that the US is opening its doors (airports and land borders) to fully vaccinated travellers from Mexico, Canada, the United Kingdom and most of Europe, as well as China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil.

Air travellers will be required to show not only their vaccination status, but also a negative COVID-19 test. Those travelling by land from Canada and Mexico will need to show only proof of vaccination.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the US will accept travellers who have been fully vaccinated with any of the vaccines approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO), not just those approved by US authorities.

The lifting of restrictions comes as the US has seen its COVID-19 outlook improve significantly in recent weeks since the summer surge spurred by the Delta variant.
