This was communicated by a White House official, who also recalled that the Center for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) considers fully vaccinated those who have carried out the entire cycle of one of the vaccines authorized by the World Health Organization.
After 18 months of blockade it is therefore possible to return to travel for tourism in the United States, one of the first “revolutions” of the administration of Joe Biden. Until now, travel by land, train and ferry between the United States, Canada and Mexico had also been largely limited to the essentials due to the pandemic.
From 8 November, therefore, travelers who have completed the anti-covid vaccination cycle will be able to arrive in the USA by land, from Canada or Mexico, and by air if they come from dozens of countries including the entire Schengen area, China, India, Brazil and the United Kingdom. Those arriving by plane will also be asked for a swab performed no later than 3 days before departure, which will not be necessary for those arriving by land from the North or South, for American citizens-residents or for a native or inhabitant across the border.
Upon arrival in the US, travelers will have to show proof of being fully vaccinated, as well as agree to wear the mask all the time and communicate email and phone number for tracking.
