U.S. Travel Reacts to Tighter Entry Restrictions for U.S. Arrivals

Published on : Friday, December 3, 2021

U.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Policy Tori Emerson Barnes issued the following statement on the Biden administration’s announcement that it would tighten the pre-departure testing window for entry to the U.S. from three days for vaccinated travelers to one day:

“We hope this measure to narrow the pre-departure testing window will be temporary until more is learned about the Omicron variant. In the meantime, the travel industry urges everyone to get vaccinated and boosted as soon as possible.

“It has long been known that measures to combat the virus and its variants would evolve and require us to be nimble and adapt.

“It is critically important that we communicate these policy changes clearly to global travelers and continue to welcome all qualified visitors to the United States.”
