It is noted that the new entry rules provide a number of conditions. For example, foreigners traveling on nonimmigrant visas to the United States from November 8 must, when boarding a flight, provide a certificate of vaccination with drugs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization.
Previously, vaccines developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson were approved in the United States. In addition to them, the World Health Organization also approved the drugs AstraZeneca, the Serum Institute in India and the Chinese Sinopharm.
It is noted that the rule does not apply to children under 18 years of age, people with medical contraindications. In addition, there is a limited range of humanitarian exceptions. Fully vaccinated are people who received their last vaccination at least two weeks before the flight for a two-part approved vaccine.
In addition to the vaccination certificate, vaccinated foreigners will need to provide a negative coronavirus test taken no later than 72 hours before departure. Those eligible for the vaccine exemption need a test done at least 24 hours in advance.
US citizens returning home are not required to provide proof of vaccination.
As we reported, US President Joe Biden signed a decree introducing new vaccine requirements for most foreign passengers and lifting strict travel restrictions for residents of China, India and most of Europe from November 8.
