The Biden administration has announced that it will lift international travel restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers starting in early November. At that time, the country-specific travel bans for all 26 Schengen countries, the United Kingdom, Ireland, India, China, Brazil, South Africa, and Iran will be lifted and replaced with new vaccination and testing requirements.

International travelers will need to provide proof of full vaccination and proof of a negative Covid test taken within 3 days before entering the US.

Unvaccinated Americans will be able to enter the US but will face stricter testing requirements. They will need to test negative for the coronavirus one day before traveling to the US and again after arriving.

All inbound travelers will also be required to provide phone numbers and email addresses for a new contact tracing system.

We will provide updates on the new international travel policy as soon as they are available.
