On Wednesday, White House officials said they are ready to lift the restriction on fully vaccinated foreign visitors. The United States closed its borders for visitors due to pandemics and now plans to eventually begin allowing them back into the country.
Biden’s administration values international travel and wants visitors abroad safely and sustainably, stated by AsiaOne. The US plan for foreign visitors looks tentative now but aims to be a significant evolution to stemming the outbreak. Sidestepping European pressure, Washington earlier stated on July 26 that they will maintain restrictions on international arrival. The US has restricted travel thru and fro for European Union, Britain, China, and Iran lasted approximately for almost a year.
The timeline is yet to be fixed for the relaxation since the US is facing a rise in the cases of Delta variant particularly among the unvaccinated people. The number of hospitalizations in Florida is increasing rapidly. As per Asia One News, currently, most international travelers are prevented from entering the country and the country is currently maintaining the existing travel restrictions. More than 70% of Americans have received one dose of the Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19. Many businesses and states are being forced to introduce the rule of wearing masks again in public places.
