Another welcome news for travelers claiming to enter the United States came on Tuesday with the announcement that land borders with Canada and Mexico Reopen completely for vaccine visitors. In November.

The new policy is closely related to this. New US International Air Travel Rules Announced September 20.

Both measures are due to take effect in November, although no specific dates have been announced.

Depending on the country from which international tourists are coming and their vaccination status, plans loosen and tighten existing laws.

We still know what the new policies will mean:

Visitors from Mexico and Canada will soon be able to enter by land and ferry.

Land and ferry ports of entry will soon be opened for tourism, friends and family trips and other unnecessary trips, provided visitors are fully vaccinated. Senior administration officials said there would be no need for an investigation.

This is the first phase of the new policy, which will take effect in November.

Students and truck drivers traveling for essential reasons will be allowed to cross borders regardless of vaccination until early January 2022. Reach by land and ferry

Currently, air travel from Mexico and Canada is permitted in the United States, with evidence of a negative Covid 19 test. Things will get tougher for foreign arrivals in November, when the need for vaccinations for all international air travelers will be met.

The rules for children without immunizations are not yet clear.

The Department of Homeland Security’s announcement of land borders between Mexico and Canada did not address children, many of whom are not eligible for the vaccine.

The rules for air travel for immunized children are also unclear, although non-immunized Americans will be allowed to travel to the United States by air with more rigorous testing.

White House Press Secretary Jane Sackie indicated on Sept. 20 that the rules “will, at this time, clearly apply to children as well.”

It is unclear whether the same rules will apply to children deprived of immunizations from other countries. CNN has sought clarification from the Department of Homeland Security.

The door is finally opening for people from countries affected by the travel ban.

Travel ban Presidential announcements have barred foreign nationals from early arrival from China, Iran, the Schengen area of ​​Europe, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, Brazil, South Africa and India.

In many cases, for the first time in more than a year, vaccinated foreign nationals who were in those countries for 14 days before entering the United States were soon allowed to take evidence of the vaccine and take the negative Covid 19 test within three. Will go on the day of their flight

Passengers receiving immunizations from other countries will no longer be allowed.

Currently, one Negative Covid 19 test or recent evidence of recovery from Covid 19. Allows international air travelers without immunizations who are not affected by the travel ban.

Under the new rules for November, adult foreign nationals will have to provide proof of vaccination and the result of a negative Covid 19 test within three days of their flight.

So America’s doors seem to be closing for unsafe travelers from other countries.

As mentioned above, unvaccinated travelers from Canada and Mexico will be allowed to arrive by land or ferry for essential reasons until January, when the need for vaccination applies to all foreign nationals. Will

Unsafe US citizens and permanent residents will still be allowed in.

Unsafe Americans are at least exempt from air travel.

Jeff Zentz, White House Co-ordinator 19 Response Coordinator, said that when he announces new rules for international air travel on September 20

The October 12 announcement of land borders between Mexico and Canada did not specifically address unsafe Americans, but vaccinations are needed for “foreign travelers at home.”

The CDC defines the meaning of ‘fully vacated’

People are considered. “Fully vaccinated” Two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or two weeks after a single dose of vaccine.

Some vaccines not yet approved for use in the United States will be accepted for travel.

The CDC said in a statement: “Last week, in order to assist them in developing their system, we informed the airlines that vaccines registered with the United States for FDA approval or emergency use. Will meet travel standards. ” “The CDC will issue additional guidance and information as travel requirements are finalized later this month.”

The agency did not respond to questions about land borders or mix-and-match vaccinations, which were raised by Canada and several other countries.

All international air travelers will be required to provide contact tracing information.

The CDC is ready to issue a contact tracing order stating that “airlines will be required to collect comprehensive contact information for each passenger arriving in the United States and the CDC will be notified immediately. Will need to be provided. For various variants of Covid 19 or other pathogens, “Saki said on September 20.

The agency has not yet provided additional details about the order.

Americans can now travel to Canada and Mexico.
