AIR MILES: United States To Re-Open Travel To Fully Vaccinated Brits

FULLY Vaccinated Brits will soon able to travel to the United States following an 18-month ban due to Covid-19.

President Biden said that the U.S. will re-open it’s borders to air passengers from Britain and some other European countries who have received two shots of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Brave Brits will be able to travel to the land of the free from November, a White House spokesperson said.

The ban on UK and European travellers was enacted under former President Donald Trump due to spiralling COVID cases.

The U.S. restrictions were first imposed on travellers from China in January 2020 by then-President Donald Trump and then extended to other countries in the following months.

President Joe Biden in April of this year added new travel restrictions on India, barring most non-U.S. citizens from entering the United States, Indians are now able to travel to the US following the relaxation of the rules.

The United States currently bars most non-U.S. citizens from entering including those from the 26 Schengen countries in Europe without border controls, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil.

There will be some exceptions to the vaccine policy, officials said, including for children not yet eligible to be vaccinated.

The new rules do not yet apply to travelers crossing land borders with Mexico and Canada.

Airlines have heavily lobbied the White House for months to lift the restrictions but were unsuccessful at having them lifted in time for the summer travel season.

The White House said in July it had concerns about the highly infectious coronavirus Delta variant and a rising number of U.S. COVID-19 cases.

The seven-day average of reported U.S. COVID-19 cases has more than doubled since then.
