US to lift travel ban for vaccinated people from November

The United States is to lift the current travel ban for people traveling into the country for vaccinated people from November.

The strict ban has been in place since March 2020, when President Donald Trump implemented the measures in a bid to curtail the spread of the virus.


The restrictions have remained in place for the duration of Joe Biden’s Presidency, but there has been pressure from the EU and the UK in recent months for the US to lift the ban.

The lifting of the ban will apply to all passengers if they are fully vaccinated and undergo testing and contact tracing.

The European Union agreed in June to reopen travel for passengers arriving from the United States, requiring proof of vaccination or negative tests.


These updated measures are due to take effect in early November.
