From Monday 8 November, the US will open its borders to those fully vaccinated with FDA approved vaccines from 33 countries.
The new rules will apply to Schengen countries – a group of 26 European nations including Germany, France and Greece – as well as the UK, Brazil, China, India, Iran, Ireland, and South Africa.
Fully vaccinated travellers will not be required to quarantine on arrival too. Entry to the US has been blocked since March 2020, meaning many non-US citizens can finally be reunited with family and friends in the US. The ban will be lifted due to the success of the global vaccine rollout. The unvaccinated will not be allowed entry on any grounds.
