New rules for travel to the United States
We will be able to travel from November onwards, and only if we come from countries of the European Union, Brazil, the United Kingdom and China. Land borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed for the time being.
The decision lifts the ban affecting the 26 European states in the Schengen area, plus the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil, China, Iran, South Africa and India. The European Union has allowed entry to Americans since July, although the principle of reciprocity was not applied in the USA.
In addition, fully vaccinated international travelers will not be quarantined once they arrive on U.S. soil, but they will have to provide contact details to facilitate tracing in the event of infection, a task which falls to the airlines.
Thus, in the coming days, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will issue an order requiring airlines to “collect contact information” on passengers to maintain traceability in the event of an infection.
No the ESTA will not be withdrawn from all Spanish-Cubans.
Government officials and business leaders had decried the economic impact of the travel ban on the Canadian and Mexican border communities, which had been in place since March 2020 . The restrictions also separated families around the world.
In order to prevent the spread of the virus, Donald Trump was one of the first rulers to suspend travel from China in February 2020, and a month later did so for European countries and also closed its land borders with Mexico and Canada. These restrictions drastically reduced the intense human and economic exchanges with those countries.
International travelers who are vaccinated and who fly from countries previously subject to travel restrictions due to the pandemic, a list that included the 26 European states in the Schengen area, as well as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil, China, Iran, South Africa and India, will also be able to do so.
Accepted vaccinesThe accepted vaccines will be those approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), i.e. those developed by AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, India’s Covaxin and China’s Sinopharm and Sinovac. For the time being, the Russian Sputnik V and the Chinese CanSino, used in many Latin American countries, are not considered.

The move would relax a patchwork of bans that had begun to cause debate overseas and replace them with more uniform requirements for inbound international air passengers.
It will be good news for the travel industry, which has been lobbying the federal government to lift some of the rules that impede international tourism, as well as for airlines, hotels and hotel groups.
“The CDC has already informed airlines that all FDA-approved and licensed vaccines, as well as all vaccines that have a WHO Emergency Use List (EUL), will be accepted for air travel. We anticipate the same will be true at the land border,” the official said.
“These travelers should be prepared to attest to vaccination status and present proof of vaccination to a CBP agent upon request,” the official said. “By January, foreign nationals crossing the land border for both essential and non-essential reasons will be required to be fully vaccinated.”
Government makes the right decisions in COVID epidemic
With the landing of World Atlantic’s N802WA aircraft, flights between Miami and Santa Clara were resumed at the Abel Santamaría Airport, being the first of the Cuban provinces to resume these operations. Some 80 passengers arrive from Miami to the center of the Island, in this first airport operation that once again connects the U.S. with Cuba.
The U.S. Government on Wednesday modified its regulations on group travel and the sending of remittances to Cuba. Thus, group educational trips by Americans to the island will be allowed. Regarding remittances, the US Administration officially eliminated the limit of 1,000 dollars every three months.
The administration of U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday removed restrictions on flights to Cuba that were imposed during the administration of his predecessor, Donald Trump, including the end of a ban on U.S. flights to Cuban airports other than Havana.
