The USA wants to lift the entry ban for Europeans due to the corona pandemic in November.

However, these must meet a requirement.

A few weeks ago it became known that the USA was considering easing the situation for travelers from the EU *.

There has been an extensive entry ban since March 2020, including for Europeans, in order to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

While the EU's borders have been open to travelers from the USA for a long time, the United States took its time to make a decision.

But now the country wants to get serious: From November, the borders are to open again to Europeans, as the Corona coordinator of the White House, Jeffrey Zients, announced.

USA plans to lift entry bans for vaccinated Europeans

For the time being, however, it is important that this relaxation will

only apply to vaccinated travelers

.

It is not yet clear which vaccines will be accepted.

Neither is cross-vaccination recognized as complete immunization - it is common in Germany, but not in the United States.

However, it is likely that the vaccines that are approved in the USA will also be accepted by travelers - so far these have been the vaccines from Biontech / Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.
