White House Lifts Vaccination Mandate for International Travelers

It is one of the last nails in the coffin of pandemic travel requirements. As expected, the Biden administration on Monday announced the end of the Covid-19 vaccine requirements for international travelers.

Since November 2021, non-U.S. citizens have had to show proof of being fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before traveling by air to the United States from a foreign country.

The 18-month mandate will officially end at the end of the day on May 11, the same day that the Covid-19 public health emergency ends. “We are now in a different phase of our response when these measures are no longer necessary,” according to the White House statement.
