US plans to require Covid vaccine for foreign travellers

AKIPRESS.COM - The US will eventually require almost all foreign visitors to be fully vaccinated, BBC reports citing a White House official.

The unnamed official told several news agencies that the Biden administration had tasked inter-agency groups with creating a phased reopening for international visitors.

No timeline for the decision was given.

The US has seen a rise in cases, particularly among the unvaccinated, amid the spread of the Delta variant.

Current Covid-19 rules prevent most international travellers from entering the country.

The first round of travel restrictions were imposed on China in January 2020.
