Foreign Tourists Vaccinated Against COVID-19 Allowed To Enter US If They Have These Vaccines
Those foreign tourists vaccinated against the deadly COVID-19 with a drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or World Health Organization will be allowed to enter the US in November.
As per CDC spokesperson Caitlin Shockey, “Earlier this week, to help them prepare their systems, we informed airlines that the vaccines that are FDA authorized/approved or listed for emergency use by WHO will meet the criteria for travel to the U.S.”
The FDA has authorized three COVID-19 vaccines for emergency use during the pandemic. These are Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer-BioNTech. The WHO has granted approval for those three along with the Oxford-AstraZeneca/Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines.
She has also said that CDC will be releasing additional guidance and information after the travel requirements are finalized.

However, there are some entry requirements that will need to be met by foreign travelers. Firstly, they will need to show proof of full vaccination before boarding U.S.-bound planes. Also, they will need to produce a COVID-19 test and proof of negative results.
Also, enhanced contract tracing and masking will be required. On the other hand, quarantine will not be required.
The US has eased travel restrictions and will now allow entry of foreigners into the country who are fully vaccinated and test negative for Covid. The changes will come into effect from November.
Those planning to enter the States will have to provide proof of vaccination before boarding and a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of flight.
The fully vaccinated will not have to undergo quarantine upon arrival.
