The United States Opens Up for Double Jabbed Visitors

On Monday, the United States will reopen its borders to double-jabbed foreign tourists, lifting a 20-month prohibition. Former President Donald Trump issued the restriction as a result of Covid-19. It has impacted non-US citizens from more than 30 nations, including the United Kingdom and EU member states, causing family separation and halting tourism. In addition, airlines are bracing for a surge of visitors when restrictions on people who have been completely vaccinated and have undergone testing and contact tracing are relaxed.

In early 2020, US borders were restricted to travelers from China to curb the spread of coronavirus. Other countries were then subjected to the limitations. As a result, most non-US citizens who had visited the UK and several other European nations and China, India, South Africa, Iran, and Brazil were denied entrance. “It feels good, it feels good!” Jerome Thomann, head of Paris-based travel agency Jetset Voyages told Reuters news agency, saying his team had seen an “incredible upturn” in bookings.

Foreign travelers will be required to produce proof of vaccination before traveling, obtain a negative Covid-19 test result within three days of flight, and provide their contact information under the new guidelines. There will be no need for quarantine. Ms. Henry, from Cheshire, is flying to New York on Monday for the first time in 20 months to meet her son.

For those who have been appropriately vaccinated, the US land borders with Canada and Mexico will reopen. Thousands of migrants have arrived in places around Mexico’s border with the United States, seeking to benefit from the new restrictions. A new caravan of thousands of mostly Central American migrants has crossed from Chiapas to Oaxaca state in southern Mexico, with the ultimate goal of crossing the border and being allowed into the United States.
