Advancing the Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the Covid-19 Pandemic

On October 25, 2021, The White House announced a new travel policy, Advancing the Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the Covid-19 Pandemic. This proclamation, which will become effective on November 8, 2021, 12:01 Am (EST) will revoke the four geographic travel ban restrictions and replace them with a global requirement that “noncitizens who are nonimmigrants” traveling to the U.S. by air from any part of the world establish that they are fully vaccinated, with some exceptions.

A separate CDC order will also continue to require all air travelers to show results of a negative coronavirus test performed on a specimen taken three days (if fully vaccinated) or one day (if not fully vaccinated and entering under an exception) preceding their flight’s departure from a foreign country traveling to the United States.
