The Biden administration will roll out a new travel system next month that will make it tougher for unvaccinated Americans to reenter the country.
The new system, effective Nov. 8, will also end the current U.S. travel ban, allowing international visitors as long as they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
“For anyone traveling to the United States who cannot demonstrate proof of full vaccination, they will have to produce documentation of a negative test within one day of departure” instead of the current rule of three days, the White House said, USA Today reported.
Fully vaccinated Americans will also have a three-day period for coronavirus testing with negative results, but if they are not able to show proof of immunization, they will have to undergo a one-day testing requirement. USA Today reported.
Foreign nationals with vaccinations approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization will be allowed to get on planes to the U.S., with a few exceptions.
