The White House announced Monday that it will soon end the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for nonimmigrant international air travelers. The Department of Homeland Security announced it would end the vaccination requirement for non-U.S. travelers entering the U.S. via land ports of entry and ferry terminals.
Background: The Biden administration first introduced the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for international air travelers and those crossing at land borders and ferry terminals in November 2021.
BAL Analysis: The termination of the COVID-19 vaccination requirements will coincide with the end of the national COVID-19 public health emergency. The Biden administration has been reviewing COVID-related immigration policies and, in addition to the vaccination policy, recently ended COVID-related flexible deadlines for responding to some U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services requests. BAL will continue to monitor the administration’s COVID policies and will provide updates as information becomes available.
