The White House confirmed this Friday that travelers who are fully vaccinated against covid-19 will be able to travel to the United States from anywhere in the world as of November 8.

The tourism industry welcomed Washington’s decision, advanced on September 20 and confirmed now, as citizens from the European Union, the United Kingdom, China, Brazil, India, Iran, Ireland and South Africa will be able to travel directly to the United States. after more than a year without being able to do so.

The delay in lifting the restrictions had generated controversy, since passengers from 150 other countries, many of them with high rates of contagion, could continue to enter the United States without problem.

“This policy is guided by public health, rigorously and consistently,” said a White House spokesman when presenting the new measures.
