International tourists are (finally) coming back

 Wednesday, November 10, 2021 



Airlines and U.S. Customs and Border Protection expect a spike in travel starting Monday, the day the U.S. reopens to foreign visitors from dozens of countries, and U.S. land borders with Canada and Mexico reopen to nonessential travel.

Add in a slew of new entry requirements for international visitors that must be verified by airlines – proof of COVID-19 vaccination, a negative coronavirus test and attestation forms – and bottlenecks are inevitable.

Airlines are prepping for a big increase in travelers eager to vacation in the United States or reunite with loved ones.

United Airlines expects more than 30,000 people to fly into the U.S. that day.  That equates to a peak summer day for the airline.

Most of the flights will be “fairly full,” according to spokesperson Nicole Carriere.

British Airways is operating 26 flights to 15 destinations including New York, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles on Monday, flights that will now include a mix of passengers from both sides of the Atlantic instead of primarily U.S. citizens. Countries in Europe and the U.K. reopened their borders to U.S. citizens in stages and with varying entry restrictions over the summer.

Covaxin gets green light for US travel. Travellers vaccinated with Covaxin can enter US after WHO grants emergency use listing.

CDC says unvaccinated foreign tourists under 18 will not need to quarantine.

Which countries were included in the US travel ban?

The U.S. first imposed travel restrictions were first imposed in early 2020 to slow the spread of COVID-19, and were reinstated by President Joe Biden in January after then-President Donald Trump rescinded the restrictions days before the end of his term.

The country prohibits entry for most travelers from:



European Schengen area (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City)

United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland)


Republic of Ireland

South Africa
