COVID: U.S. to relax travel rules for jabbed passengers from UK and EU


Vaccinated passengers will be able to enter the U.S. from the UK and EU from November onwards, ending almost two years of coronavirus travel restrictions.

The new rules would be part of broader policy changes for international travel and will apply to fully vaccinated people, meaning those who have received two doses of a COVID19 jab.

It will end an 18-month patchwork of travel restrictions imposed by former President Donald Trump at the start of the pandemic.

Transport secretary Grant Shapps welcomed the change, tweeting: “Brilliant collaboration through our UK/U.S. working group has led to Transatlantic flights resuming from Nov for double jabbed! Great outcome.”

All foreign travellers will need to demonstrate proof of vaccination before boarding, as well as proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of the flight.
