The United States will lift its travel ban on fully vaccinated visitors from the European Union and the United Kingdom from “early November,” Washington’s COVID-19 response coordinator announced on Monday.

Jeff Zients said EU and UK travelers flying to the US will need to demonstrate proof of vaccination before boarding, as well as testing negative for the coronavirus within three days of their flight.

US citizens who are not fully vaccinated will still be able to enter the country but only with proof of a negative test within a day of travel.

Restrictions on vehicle movement from Canada and Mexico will remain in place. “We do not have any updates on the land border policies,” Zients said.
