The White House said Monday that the U.S. would soon lift regional entry bans for foreign nationals who are vaccinated against COVID-19 and show proof of a negative test, numerous media outlets reported.
The White House had not posted an official announcement as of Monday afternoon, but reports said the policy would take effect in November and that once it is implemented:
White House officials indicated this change will apply only to international air travel and does not affect land border travel restrictions.
BAL Analysis: While the announcement indicates that traveling to the U.S. may soon become easier for many foreign nationals who are fully vaccinated, the White House has yet to post the text of the new policy or provide an exact implementation date. Key details remain unknown, including which vaccines the U.S. government will deem acceptable. For now, a number of restrictions on travel to the U.S. remain in place. Travelers should continue to anticipate delays or limited availability of consular services abroad. Employers and employees should continue to consult their BAL professional before planning any international travel.
