Flight restrictions for foreign travellers into America are set to be lifted for the first time since the start of the pandemic. The US travel ban currently includes international flights from the UK, Europe, China and India.
The travel ban also includes 26 Schengen countries in Europe.
However, the proclamation signed by the US President on Monday outlined airlines will have to check whether travellers have been vaccinated before they can travel.
Mr Biden’s proclamation says: “It is in the interests of the United States to move away from the country-by-country restrictions previously applied during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“And to adopt an air travel policy that relies primarily on vaccination to advance the safe resumption of international air travel to the United States.”
Vaccines will need to be approved at least two weeks prior to the flight.
Children under 18 will be exempt but they will have to show evidence of a negative Covid test three days before travelling.
The new restrictions will be introduced on November 8.
Currently, on average the US records around 73,000 new cases per day, lower than the 173,000 recorded on September 13.
