The United States will reopen its borders to all vaccinations on November 8

The country had so far had largely limited access to its territory.

The United States will lift a ban on international travel from March 2020, for people vaccinated on 8 November, the maintenance of which has angered many of its fellow Europeans.

“The new US travel policy, which requires vaccinations for foreign travelers to the United States, will go into effect on November 8,” the White House said in a statement on Friday.

The new system will apply to passengers arriving by air as well as those crossing land borders with Canada and Mexico.

Faced with the pandemic, the United States specifically closed its borders from March 2020 to millions of travelers arriving from the European Union, the United Kingdom or China, then later from India or Brazil. They also closed their land entry points to visitors from Canada and Mexico.

This could lead to painful personal situations and economic damage.

Airborne Vaccines and Tests

For travelers arriving by air, the United States will require airlines to establish a system to track contacts, in addition to proof of vaccination and a test within three days prior to departure.

As for the land route, the White House announced this week that restrictions would be lifted in two phases.

Beginning November 8, people arriving for reasons considered non-essential on the condition of vaccination, for example families or tourists, will be able to cross the border to Canada or Mexico. People arriving for compelling reasons – truck drivers for example – will be exempt.

But starting January, the vaccination obligation will apply to all visitors crossing land borders, regardless of their reason for entering the United States.
