Kathmandu. The United States will open its borders to foreign travelers who have been fully vaccinated with the coronavirus from Monday. The decision is set to take effect in the United States on Monday, ending a 20-month travel ban.
Former President Donald Trump imposed the ban in March 2020 because of Covid 19. More than 30 countries, including the United Kingdom and the European Union, have not been able to reunite with their families due to US rule. The ban has hit the tourism sector hard.
With the new rules, airlines are expected to increase the number of visitors coming and going. Officials say visitors are being closely monitored for vaccinations. United Airlines expects international passenger arrivals in the United States to increase by 50 percent. The head of Delta Airlines has said that some passengers may have to wait for their turn.
Passengers will now be required to submit a full vaccination certificate, test of covid negative within three days of departure and their contact details before taking off. The seven main vaccines used internationally are being recognized in that process. Chinese travelers were barred from entering the United States in early 2020 to prevent the spread of the coyote, and the ban has since been extended to other countries.
