As of Nov. 8 U.S. Will Only Admit The Fully Vaccinated
The United States Government has stipulated that come November 8, all non-citizens of that country will be required to be fully vaccinated before boarding any flight.
The notice, which appears on the State Department website, came from the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC).
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced a new Order for all air passengers travelling to the United States. Effective November 8, 2021, all non-immigrant, non-citizen air travellers to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to the United States,” the notice said.
The notice further stated that the exceptions are open to an extremely limited group.
It said those that are exempt are children under 18, those who are medically unable to receive the vaccine, and emergency travellers, who do not have timely access to a vaccine.
The CDC said humanitarian exemptions to this order will be granted on an extremely limited basis.
It also noted that although unvaccinated United States citizens are not barred from travelling because of not being vaccinated, they would need to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding flights.
“U.S. citizens and Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) who are eligible to travel but are not fully vaccinated will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test one day before their flight’s departure.
“U.S citizens and LPRs who are fully vaccinated will need to present airlines with proof of vaccination and of a negative COVID-19 test three (3) days before their flight,” the CDC said.
