Strict U.S. Vaccine Rules to Implement on November 8
As of November 8, new rules will apply to foreign nationals entering the United States.
“The Biden administration has released the full details of its plan, which requires vaccination for all foreign nationals entering the United States, with few exceptions,” AFAR noted.
Biden concluded, “to adopt an air travel policy that relies primarily on vaccination to advance the safe resumption of international air travel to the United States.”
Noncitizen nonimmigrants without immunizations will no longer be allowed to enter the country (US) except under special circumstances starting next month.
In addition to the requirement for a negative COVID test, everyone coming into the country (including citizens of the US and residents) must receive a vaccination.

United States citizens who do not have vaccinations will have to get tested within 24 hours of boarding their flight.
It is also currently necessary to take a negative test within three days of flight boarding.
