COVID Travel Restrictions Update: The US Opens Up for International Travelers

As the world continues to open up for travelers, we want to make sure you are updated on the current COVID travel restrictions as they stand and what countries are allowing vacationers to visit.

We’ve talked previously about other places allowing US travelers in (Europe is the latest on this list), but today is great news for international travelers. The US travel ban is dropping for vaccinated international travelers beginning in November of this year.

Updated US Travel Restrictions and Requirements for International Travelers

Earlier this week, the United States announced a new international air travel system that will open travel for all vaccinated individuals outside of the country. This includes those currently impacted by the US travel ban such as the United Kingdom, Europe, China, Brazil, India, and others.

Those traveling into the US will need to show proof of full vaccination prior to getting on any US-bound planes. A negative COVID-19 test will still be required within three days of departure. Contact tracing and masking will also be required, but there will be no mandate to quarantine.

Those who are unvaccinated will need to test negative for COVID-19 within one day of departure and will need to test again upon arrival.

A full list of accepted vaccinations will be announced before this updated policy goes into effect. There will also be a contact tracing order that will require all airlines to collect information including phone numbers and email addresses of those traveling into the US. This allows the CDC and local public health officials to follow up with travelers if someone around them has been exposed to the virus so that appropriate precautions can be taken.

Additionally, Americans who have traveled internationally still must test negative for COVID-19 no more than three days before flying back into the US (keeping up with the requirement set back in January).

Easing up on the US travel ban is great for international travelers, but it is also going to be fantastic for the US economy. It will also help to recover millions of travel-related jobs that have been lost due to the international COVID travel restrictions.
