Coronavirus: US to lift travel ban for EU, UK from November

The United States will lift its travel ban on fully vaccinated visitors from the European Union and the United Kingdom from “early November,” Washington’s COVID-19 response coordinator announced on Monday.

Jeff Zients said all foreign travelers flying to the US will need to demonstrate proof of vaccination before boarding, as well as testing negative for the coronavirus within three days of flight.

The restrictions have been in place since former US President Donald Trump first imposed the ban in March 2020 as the pandemic swiftly brought global travel to a standstill.
