US Travel Ban Lifted On Nov. 8: What You Need To Know

Posted on November 8th, 2021 by Scott Hershman

While traveling outside of the US has been possible for several months now, the same cannot be said for those in dozens of countries who wish to travel here. Thousands of non-immigrant and foreign travelers living or present in places like China, Brazil, and India have been prohibited from entering the United States since early 2020.

On November 8th, these international travelers will be allowed to enter the United States of America as long as they meet US Covid-19 testing and vaccine requirements. The full list of countries that citizens will be allowed to travel from includes those within the European Union, the United Kingdom, Iran, India, South Africa, China, Brazil and the Republic of Ireland.

By opening travel to these countries again, the White House as well as the Department of State hope to further improve US tourism, which had a $2.6 trillion output in 2019. There aren’t any expectations for an international tourist travel boom to occur on or shortly after November 8th. Instead, US leaders hope this ban being lifted will bring in more foreign visitors and improve the US tourism output by 2023.

What Is Required To Travel To The United States

Depending on the country you’re traveling from, you’ll likely be required to fill out a tourist or business visa to enter the United States. For stays shorter than 90 days, the US allows foreign nationals from 40 different countries to visit through its Visa Waiver Program.

In addition to visa and other documentation requirements, all foreign travelers must show proof of vaccination for Covid-19 by a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO) approved manufacturer. These manufacturers include Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Oxford/AstraZeneca (Covishield), Sinopharm and Sinovac.

International visitors must also produce a negative Covid-19 test one day prior to boarding a flight and upon arrival, in order to enter the country.

With this US Travel Ban Lift occurring during the beginning of November, this will give family members and friends in these countries the perfect opportunity to plan visits for the holidays.
