The relaxation should still be announced on Monday, reported the “Financial Times”, “Politico” and CNN. They are to apply from November.

The far-reaching entry ban had been imposed at the beginning of the Corona pandemic in early 2020 by then U.S. President Donald Trump and has so far been maintained by his successor Joe Biden. The travel industry, among others, had long called for a relaxation, at least for travelers vaccinated against the Corona virus.

Initially, media had reported about it: “Politico” referred to EU diplomats, the “Financial Times” and CNN to unspecified informed persons. Then in the evening came the confirmation from the White House.

Green Card
The previous travel restrictions state that only U.S. citizens and green card holders and their family members can enter the U.S. if they have been in the EU or the U.K. in the past 14 days. All others need special permission.

Tourism to be boosted
The EU had already called on member states in the summer to gradually lift restrictions on travelers from the U.S. and several other countries. Germany had responded by allowing entries again from the U.S., among others, “for all permissible purposes of stay, including tourism.” However, the U.S. government maintained the restrictions in July, citing the more contagious delta variant.
