U.S. to lift travel ban on Nov. 8, allowing vaccinated international visitors into the country

Source: CNBC

The White House on Friday said it would allow international travelers who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 into the U.S. starting Nov. 8, lifting a ban on visitors from the EU, UK and other countries.

The White House last month said it planned to lift the travel restrictions, which barred most non-U.S. citizens who had recently been in Europe, Brazil, South Africa and elsewhere, in early November. The rules were first set Trump administration early in the pandemic to slow the spread of Covid-19, and extended by the new Biden administration in the winter. The Biden administration had said visitors would have to be fully vaccinated against Covid to enter.

The measure is a relief for large airlines like Delta, United and American, which have struggled to return to profitability with international travel curbed for more than a year and a half. Each of those airlines gained more than 2% in morning trading Friday, compared with an 0.4% gain in the S&P 500.

1. My international travel last month was interesting. A medical officer was right at the gate

when i got off the ramp.

I am curious as how other travelers have fared.

4. I've had that on one or two return flights from the UK...

but not my last one (which was the other day). But the Brits are dogmatic about checking all the paperwork before the flight and the flight crew were insistent on masks. The pilot actually said (in his lovely accent): "You knew what you signed up for when you booked your flight."

2. If only we could kick out the Americans who aren't vaccinated.

Seriously, why restrict travellers when half the country refuses to get vaccinated anyway?
