US lifts travel restrictions from certain countries

IATA welcomed the decision by the Biden Administration to enable vaccinated travelers to enter the United States with a negative COVID-19 test result prior to travel from early November. Importantly, this supersedes the so-called 212f restrictions that prevented anyone from entering the United States if they had been in 33 specific countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, all Schengen countries, Brazil, South Africa, India, and China within the last 14 days.


European travel rules still confusing for passengers

IATA warned that free movement within Europe is being compromised by the failure of EU member states to harmonize COVID-19 entry regulations. As a result, the reopening of borders is confusing travelers and businesses and not delivering the expected benefits in terms of easier travel and economic recovery.
