Foreign tourists from Europe will be allowed to visit starting on Nov. 8, as long as they can show that they are fully vaccinated. these rules apply to people traveling for tourism or to visit friends and family, whether it’s by air, by crossing the land borders with Canada and Mexico, or arriving in the United States by passenger ferry.

According to Kevin Munoz, White House assistant press secretary:

 “The US’ new travel policy that requires vaccination for foreign national travelers to the United States will begin on Nov 8…This announcement and date applies to both international air travel and land travel. This policy is guided by public health, stringent, and consistent.”

Air travelers will have to show proof of vaccination and results of a negative test taken within three days before boarding the plane. Land and ferry travelers will have to attest to their vaccination status and show proof upon request. Business travelers — who have not been affected by the bans — will have to be fully vaccinated by January, the White House said.
