US President Joe Biden today signed a new decree lifting most travel restrictions for foreigners seeking to visit the United States from November 8.

After that date, minors under the age of 18 will not need to prove that they have been vaccinated for Covid-19 to enter the United States.

A senior White House official, speaking by telephone about the new regulations governing the opening of borders to those entering the country by air, said that in order to exclude minors, different measures were taken into account between countries for the vaccination of children and the availability of vaccines by country.

For vaccinated travelers, the borders that had been closed since March 8 for millions of people around the world will reopen on November 2020. Only certain categories of travelers will be exempted from the vaccination obligation: according to a document released by the US government, some of the participants in clinical trials of the vaccine, those who have medical reasons not to be vaccinated, those who travel for humanitarian or urgent reasons and those coming from countries where vaccine availability is low.

Children over the age of two who have not been vaccinated will be tested three days before arrival in the United States if they are traveling with vaccinated adults. If traveling alone or accompanied by unvaccinated adults, they will take the test one day before departure.

In general, all foreigners should be tested three days before departure for vaccination and one day before departure for unvaccinated. This measure also applies to U.S. citizens and permanent residents returning to the United States.

According to the White House, it is up to the airlines to check the vaccination certificates before boarding.

The US has already announced that it is accepting all vaccines approved by the World Health Organization (AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer / BioNTech, Sinopharm and Sinovac). They also approve combinations of different vaccines for the first dose and boosters.

Airlines should also collect information from travelers that will allow authorities to locate them upon arrival in the United States if they have been infected or come in contact with a Covid-19 case.
