U.S. lifts restrictions for international travelers
The U.S. Government has announced the end of restrictions for international travelers. A negative coronavirus test is no longer required to enter the country.
The requirement that does remain in effect is the certificate of vaccination that must be presented by all travelers who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
“Foreign travelers must be on a full vaccination regimen and provide documentation of vaccination status before boarding the aircraft,” the U.S. Embassy in Spain notes.
Proof of vaccination must be presented in paper or digital format. It must include the traveler’s name, date of birth and vaccination dates.
According to government sources, although covid-19 infection has not decreased, there is no longer a scientific reason to maintain the restrictions because the vaccination process has been successful and the new variants of the virus are less aggressive.
Looking ahead to the summer, the restrictions will not apply to U.S. citizens or travelers. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will review the decision over the next few weeks and, if necessary, re-implement restrictions if deemed necessary.
