The White House announced today that it would revoke its travel ban on visitors from 33 countries beginning in November. The travel ban will be lifted for CRUSA’s target markets of the UK, France, and Germany. Foreign travelers will need to show proof of vaccination before boarding and a negative test for the coronavirus within three days before traveling to the United States.
This announcement is perfectly timed as CRUSA and representatives from around the region are currently attending IPW. CRUSA is excited to see the return of international travel to the US and the Capital Region. We share the sentiments shared in the following statement by Roger Dow, President and CEO of US Travel Association:
"The U.S. Travel Association applauds the Biden administration’s announcement of a roadmap to reopen air travel to vaccinated individuals from around the world, which will help revive the American economy and protect public health.
This is a major turning point in the management of the virus and will accelerate the recovery of the millions of travel-related jobs that have been lost due to international travel restrictions."
