United States (US) will reopen in early November to fully vaccinated air travelers from China, India, the UK and other European countries.

These countries have been banned from the United States since early 2020 due to travel restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.

US Travel Restrictions 

United States currently bars most non-US citizens who have lived within the past 14 days in the UK, Europe's 26 Schengen countries without border controls in Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil.

Officials said the vaccine policy would have some exceptions, including children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated. The new rules do not yet apply to travelers crossing land borders with Mexico and Canada.

Jeff Ziants, the White House's coronavirus response coordinator, said passengers would need to show they were fully vaccinated before boarding planes in the US, as well as provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test within three days.

Americans not fully vaccinated will still be able to enter, but only if they test negative within a day of travel. Masks will be mandatory on flights to the US and airlines will provide contact tracing information to US health officials.
