Foreign Travellers who have been vaccinated against coronavirus with a drug approved by World Health Organization will get a green signal to enter into the United States in November, as per the top U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The CDC spokesperson said that six vaccines that are permitted by FDA or listed for emergency use by WHO will meet the conditions for travelers to enter the United States. The FDA has approved three coronavirus vaccines for emergency use during the pandemic including Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Whereas the WHO has approved three coronavirus vaccines for emergency consumption are Sinopharm, Oxford-AstraZeneca/Covishield, and Sinovac.
Earlier on Sep. 20, the U.S. government has announced that they would be introducing a new international air travel system that would open travel for vaccinated foreign Travellers and would help to shape up the travel industry in the country.
Moreover, the US officials also declared that the country would lift the travel constraint from 33 more countries that had been listed at the when deadliest coronavirus spreading across the globe and the US was desperately trying to stop it.
The US health agency further added that they will announce additional guidelines and detailed information when the tourism requirements get finalized.
However, finally, the Unites Stated tourism industry is glad to open the doors for foreign Travellers. Travel has suffered losses since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic due to the repetitive lockdowns and border closures.
Foreign Travellers need to show their proof of full vaccination prior to entering U.S. planes. Along with this, they also need to submit the COVID-19 test within three days of departure and show proof of negative results.
