The United States is one of the few countries in the world that enforces entry restrictions. The U.S. Department of Aviation and Tourism has called for the abolition of mandatory testing for at least those who have been vaccinated. The White House has stated its position on the matter.
Many countries in the world are abandoning the Govt policy and removing most entry restrictions. This is especially important in the context of the upcoming holiday season. The lack of travel restrictions will definitely attract more tourists. That is why the U.S. Department of Civil Aviation and Tourism has once again called for the easing of restrictions on entry into the United States.
United States. “Mandatory testing will be maintained for now”
According to Rzeczpospolita, the U.S. Department of Civil Aviation and Tourism calls for the abolition of the duty to be fully tested by vaccinated passengers. In a letter to the government, representatives of airports, hotel chains and airlines said that maintaining these restrictions would have a very negative financial impact on the tourism sector. They pointed out that similar rules no longer apply when crossing the land border with Canada and Mexico.
– We are constantly evaluating the current situation and entry rules, but for the time being mandatory pre-arrival checks will be maintained – Says Karin Jean-Pierre, spokesman for the White House, quoted by the German Press Agency. “Any regulatory decisions are based solely on the judgment of health and medical professionals,” he added.
Restrictions on entry into the United States
The United States reopened its borders to tourists on November 8, 2021, following a long closure triggered by the Govt-19 epidemic. However, some entry rules apply when crossing the border.
Only those who have been vaccinated and are recovering can enter the United States. Vaccine or disease must be confirmed by Govt-19 in paper or electronic form (EU COVID certification). However, vaccination with a booster dose is not mandatory.
But that’s not all. All travelers over the age of 2 must have a Govt-19 test the day before they arrive in the United States. This obligation applies to both vaccinated foreigners and Americans.
