On September 20, 2021, the Biden administration announced that it will ease the regional entry restrictions for travelers from the United Kingdom, 26 Schengen countries in Europe, Ireland, China, Iran, Brazil, South Africa and India beginning in November 2021.
Under the current Presidential Proclamations which imposed travel bans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, foreign nationals who have been physically present in the above listed countries during the two weeks preceding their attempted entry are barred from coming to the United States. Beginning in November 2021, travelers with proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 and a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of departure will likely be eligible to enter the U.S. by international air travel.
