The White House announced an end to travel restrictions for vaccinated foreign nationals beginning on November 8, 2021. The new policy will require foreign nationals entering the US by air to be fully vaccinated. The White House is expected to issue guidance on limited exceptions to the vaccination requirement prior to November 8. All FDA approved vaccines and those with an Emergency Use Listing from the World Health Organization will be accepted. All travelers will also need to continue to show a pre-departure negative COVID-19 test within three days of travel.
The White House also announced a reopening of the Canadian and Mexican land borders for non-essential travel. Beginning November 8, 2021, fully vaccinated foreign nationals may begin traveling across the land border for non-essential reasons. By January 2022, all inbound foreign travelers will be required to be fully vaccinated.
