U.S. lifts restrictions on transatlantic travel

Sep 21, 2021

The U.S. announced that it will lift travel restrictions for vaccinated citizens starting in November. AmCham welcomes the decision of the U.S. Administration believing this decision will boost business and trade and will strengthen overall U.S.-EU economic relations

Beginning in early November, foreign travelers will have to provide proof of vaccination before getting on a flight as well as proof of a negative COVID-19 test performed within three days before coming to the United States, White House pandemic coordinator Jeff Zients told The New York Times.

“International travel is critical to connecting families and friends, to fueling small and large businesses, to promoting the open exchange ideas and culture,” Mr. Zients said. “That’s why, with science and public health as our guide, we have developed a new international air travel system that both enhances the safety of Americans here at home and enhances the safety of international air travel.”
