US regime eases travel rules for 61 countries, but not UK

“The US has eased travel restrictions for many countries as the roll-out of coronavirus vaccines continues. Its public health agency updated its criteria on Monday, which saw 61 countries lowered from a Level 4 ‘avoid all travel’ rating. Countries such as France, Spain and Italy are now Level 3, which means fully-vaccinated passengers may go to these areas. Travellers from the US can visit the UK but must self-isolate. Because the US is on the UK’s ‘amber list’ visitors from the country have to self-isolate for 10 days on arrival. But most passengers from the UK are still banned from travelling to the US. Although the UK is listed as a Level 3 by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), under a presidential decree introduced last March, non-US citizens who have been in the UK in the last 14 days cannot enter the country unless a specific exemption applies.” (06/09/21)
