Authorities have issued new guidelines for foreigners entering the United States in the event of a coronavirus infection. According to the guidelines, travel to the United States can be done if the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US regulatory body have approved the corona vaccine. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Friday local time. News Reuters.
Earlier, on September 20, the White House said that the ban on air travel for citizens of 33 countries would be lifted if the full dose of corona was vaccinated from November. That list included China, India, Brazil and most of Europe. It was not immediately clear if Corona would be allowed to enter the United States with a full dose of the vaccine.
A CDC spokesman told Reuters on Friday that six companies could enter the United States if they were vaccinated under the new guidelines. The vaccines have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the WHO. However, the names of the six organizations were not mentioned in the Reuters report.
The CDC said on Friday that airlines had been notified earlier this week that foreign tourists would be allowed to enter the United States if they were vaccinated. In this way they will be able to take all the systematic preparations. The rest of the instructions and information will be communicated to them at a later time.
Airlines for America, a trade alliance representing various airlines, including American Airlines, Delta Airlines and United Airlines, described the move as “satisfactory”.
Various countries have been pressuring the US administration to accept WHO-approved vaccines for travel to the United States. Because, only FDA approved vaccines are not being given to the citizens of many countries of the world. As a result, the citizens of those countries were facing obstacles in traveling to the United States.
