Howdy! Last week we reported that the US will be re-opening to international visitors as of November 8th. This week we already have an update to the rules surrounding that re-opening.
Here is the latest update According to The White House website on October 25th:
Starting on November 8, non-citizen, non-immigrant air travelers to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to fly to the U.S., with only limited exceptions. The updated travel guidelines also include new protocols around testing. To further strengthen protections, unvaccinated travelers – whether U.S. Citizens, lawful permanent residents (LPRs), or the small number of excepted unvaccinated foreign nationals – will now need to test within one day of departure.
The big news here is that unvaccinated Americans that are returning to the US after traveling internationally will now have to produce a negative Covid test with in one day of departure – where previously it was within three days of departure – so it is cutting the testing time down considerably.
As you know – things are changing on an almost daily basis in the travel industry. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your upcoming travel plans booked through your Travel Gurus here at Book Here, Give Here please do not hesitate to reach out to us!
