New Travel Requirements Effective Monday For Anyone Coming Into U.S.

The Biden administration’s new travel requirements effective Monday For anyone coming into the U.S. All travelers coming from another country must test negative for COVID-19 one day before their departure. In the past, inbound travelers had to test negative three days before the U.S. In addition, any foreign national who travels to the U.S. must be fully vaccinated. There is a possibility that a vaccine requirement for domestic travel will be implemented in the future. The new rule placed by the CDC goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. (EST) on Monday.

The new policy is to help combat the threat of the latest coronavirus variant Omicron. As stated in our breaking news article, scientists are working around the clock to learn all that they can about the variant. “Experts say that Covid-19 cases will continue to rise in the weeks ahead and this winter,” President Biden said. “So we need to be ready.”

On Monday, the U.S. banned all travel from South Africa and its neighboring nations. However, the ban didn’t apply to U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. As of right now, there is no definitive answer about how long the new travel requirement will be in place, but per Biden, “it kind of depends.” “It’s going week-to-week, to determine what we need and what the state of affairs (is). We’re going to learn a lot more in the next couple of weeks about the lethality of this virus, about how much it spreads, about whether what we have can control it, etc.,” he continued.
