Indians who are fully vaccinated ie. Vaccinated 2 doses can now travel to the US from 8th November as White House Announced that the country will allow foreign nationals. White House officials said the policy is guided by public health, stringent, and consistent.
White House officials said that the policy has been outlined in early September to lift the restrictions on air travellers from 33 countries in early November. Starting November 8, the US will admit fully vaccinated foreign air travellers from the 26 so-called Schengen countries in Europe, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Greece, as well as Britain, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil.
US Health authorities have said that all vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization would be accepted for entry by air. At the moment, this includes the AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines.
Indians travelling to the US will need to show proof of vaccination before boarding a flight and will need to show proof of a recent negative Covid-19 test. Foreign visitors crossing a land border will not need to show proof of a recent negative Covid-19 test. The move to a vaccine-based entry system brings the US into line with the European Union, which started using Covid-pass apps at the start of summer, and the UK, which made the switch in recent weeks.
