The Biden Administration has indicated that it plans to ease restrictions on foreign travel into the U.S. beginning in November.
At that time, it will require all foreign nationals entering the U.S. by air to be fully vaccinated.
However, restrictions on non-essential travel from Canada and Mexico will continue to be in effect at the land borders until Oct. 21.
With the changes the Biden administration is making in November, foreign travellers will be required to present proof of vaccination before they board their flight to the U.S.; they’ll also have to present proof of a COVID-19 test taken within three days of the flight.
As well, the testing rules for unvaccinated U.S. citizens will be tightened and they will need to be tested within a day before returning to the U.S., and also after they arrive home.
For airlines, the CDC will be requiring them to collect contact information from international travellers in order to facilitate contact tracing.
