US to relax measures for vaccinated UK, EU visitors - report

The White House is going to announce later in the day that travelers from the United Kingdom and the European Union vaccinated against COVID-19 will be able to visit the United States starting from November, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

According to sources familiar with the matter, President Joe Biden's administration's new policy will apply to fully vaccinated persons, including those involved in clinical trials of treatments not yet approved in Britain. The decision would end a ban that has been active for the past 18 months.

The report comes after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson remarked back in July the UK and the US are discussing establishing a travel corridor between the two countries.
