The White House said Friday it would allow international travelers fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to enter the US from November 8 to lift a ban on visitors from the European Union, the UK and other countries.

The White House announced last month that it would lift travel restrictions in early November that most of the non-U.S. Citizens who recently visited Europe, Brazil, South Africa and elsewhere had put off. The rules were first set by the Trump administration at the start of the pandemic to slow the spread of Covid-19, and expanded by the new Biden administration in the winter. The Biden administration had stated that visitors had to be fully vaccinated against Covid in order to enter.

Incoming travelers, including US citizens, will still need proof of a negative Covid test to travel to the US from abroad.

The move is a relief for major airlines like Delta, United and American, which have struggled to return to profitability with international travel restrictions for more than a year and a half.

We applaud the science-based approach of the Biden administration to lift travel restrictions to the US introduced at the beginning of the pandemic, “said American CEO Doug Parker in a statement.

American stocks rose 1.7% to $ 19.98, United rose 0.2% to $ 48, and Delta fell 0.5%, ending at $ 40.99 on Friday.
