The White House has outlined new rules for foreign travellers to the US, as flight restrictions lift for the first time since the pandemic began in 2020. 

The plan to reopen the US border next month to foreign flights includes a requirement that almost all foreign visitors be vaccinated against Covid. 

The proclamation signed by Mr Biden today says that airlines will be required to check travellers’ vaccination status before they can board departing planes. 

Airlines must confirm that the proof of vaccination comes from an “official source” and was received at least two weeks prior. 

Any levitra 20mg tablets vaccines approved by US health regulators will be accepted. Unvaccinated travellers, including Americans, will have to show a negative Covid test taken within one day of departure. 

Children under the age of 18 will be exempt from the vaccination requirement but must still provide a negative test taken within three days of travel. 

The new restrictions take effect on November 8.
