Whether you’re a vaccine queen, a PCR prince or a quarantine king, there sure are a lot of requirements when it comes to getting around these days. Luckily CNN Travel is here to keep you updated on the latest developments. Here’s what we learned in pandemic travel this week.
1. The US is opening its air borders
By far the biggest travel news this week is that, after an 18-month ban, the US will finally be reopening its borders to vaccinated foreign nationals in November.
To gain entry, all foreign nationals will have to show proof of vaccination and a negative test taken within three days prior to the trip, as well as comply with enhanced contract tracing measures.
It’s not yet confirmed which vaccines will be accepted, how the US will assess and verify vaccination status, or what date the borders will open. CNN contributor Blane Bachelor has the lowdown on what we know so far.
