USA: Details on new immigration regulations | current tourism

After the announced date for the opening of the border for international travelers, the US government has now published the specific requirements for entry.

Accordingly, foreigners can re-enter the United States from November 8th if they are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. They have to present their vaccination certificate to the respective airline before boarding the aircraft. For their part, the airlines are obliged to check the personal details, the vaccination certificate issued and the vaccine administered.

As the White House further announced, vaccines are recognized that are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the WHO. This currently applies to the vaccines from Biontech / Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson as well as Sinopharm and Sinovac. It is said that a combination of two different approved vaccines will also be accepted. People who have received their last required injection at least two weeks before entry are considered fully vaccinated.

According to the US government, travelers must present a negative corona test that is no more than three days old in addition to their vaccination certificate. Exceptions to the mandatory vaccination apply to US citizens, children and people who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons. They must have a test that is no older than a day.

Further details on the requirements can be found on the White House website.
