Starting in early November, foreign nationals will be allowed to fly into the U.S. if they are fully vaccinated and able to show proof of vaccination prior to boarding a U.S.-bound flight, said White House Covid coordinator Jeffrey Zients.
The requirement will ease travel restrictions that limited entry into the United States in many cases for non-citizens who had recently been in 33 countries, including many European nations and the U.K., regardless of vaccination status.
While there is still no vaccination requirement for domestic air travel, Zients said nothing is off the table.
Zients didn't detail what vaccines will qualify and what would constitute as fully vaccinated and said the CDC would provide further details.
The new policy applies only to air travel and not land border crossings, which have been closed to non-essential travel between Canada and Mexico.
