Biden to lift travel restrictions on November 8

The United States will lift COVID-19-related travel restrictions for vaccinated passengers entering by land or air, starting from November 8, according to a proclamation issued by US President Joe Biden on Monday.

"I have determined that it is in the interests of the United States to move away from the country-by-country restrictions previously applied during the COVID-19 pandemic and to adopt an air travel policy that relies primarily on vaccination to advance the safe resumption of international air travel to the United States," read Biden's statement published by the White House.

The proclamation reinforces the importance of vaccination following the meetings the White House officials at the Office of Management and Budget held with labor unions, industry lobbyists and private individuals regarding the upcoming vaccine mandate for private companies.
