Fully vaccinated Indians can travel to US from November
Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the United States has allowed fully vaccinated flyers from several countries, including India, to enter America from early November.
The US announced that strict protocols would be in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 from international passengers. According to a senior government official, once the protocol is in place, passengers from several countries, including the UK, India, Brazil, and Europe, would be allowed to enter the US with proof of vaccination.
" President Biden announced that beginning in early November, the US will be putting in place strict protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 from international passengers by requiring that adult foreign nationals travelling here be fully vaccinated," the senior official said in a statement.
"But we're very proud of the fact that we've been able to develop a protocol that would permit travel by individuals and families and business people from the EU and UK, as well as from Brazil and India and other countries, to the United States with proof of vaccination," he said.
"Critically for our European partners and the UK, this policy means that we'll no longer be implementing current 212(f) travel policies for individual countries as of early November. We'll be moving to a consistent requirement for all international air travellers coming to the US," he added.
