Newsman: The US will allow vaccinated foreign nationals to enter Nov. 8th 2021. The United States is set to overhaul its travel restrictions and launching new international travel system on Nov. 8 thatmakes U.S. tourism possible formillions of fully vaccinated foreign tourists. 

“The US’ new travel policy that requires vaccination for foreign national travelers to the United States will begin on Nov 8,” Kevin Munoz, White House assistant press secretary said in a tweet Friday. “This announcement and date applies to both international air travel and land travel. This policy is guided by public health, stringent, and consistent.”

Foreign national air travelers will need to be vaccinated and will need to provide proof of vaccination status to fly to the U.S. and ahead of boarding will need to show a pre-departure negative test within three days of travel.

Under the new system International visitors who cross land borders with Canada and Mexico or by passenger ferry for non-essential reasons will also be required to be vaccinated and will be required to show vaccination proof. By January, foreign national travelers crossing land borders for both essential and non-essential reasons will need to be fully vaccinated.

Under the new international air travel system, foreign tourists vaccinated against COVID-19 with a drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or World Health Organization can enter the U.S. by air travel.
