Airlines Flying Into The US To Check Travellers’ Vaccination Status

Share this:

The White House has outlined new rules for foreign travellers to the US, which will come into effect on the 8th of November, according to the BBC. This new rule to foreign flights includes a requirement that almost all foreign visitors be vaccinated against Covid. The travel ban has grown to include dozens of countries, including the UK, much of Europe, China and India.

Airlines must confirm that the proof of vaccination comes from an “official source” and was received at least two weeks prior. Any vaccines approved by US health regulators will be accepted.

A proclamation signed by President Joe Biden states that airlines will be required to check travellers’ vaccination status before they can board departing planes. Unvaccinated travellers, including Americans, will have to show a negative Covid test taken within one day of departure.

Children under the age of 18 will be exempt from the vaccination requirement but must still provide a negative test taken within three days of travel.
