The White House has reportedly confirmed that it will lift Covid-19 travel restrictions for vaccinated travellers entering the country from November 8.
Those flying into the US will need to show proof that they have had both jabs, as well as having a negative coronavirus test with three days of departure, a White House official told Reuters.
White House assistant press secretary Kevin Munoz confirmed the updated travel measure on Twitter today.
It means the coveted travel corridor between the UK and the US, one frequented by London’s business and financial hub dwellers, will be reopened after more than a 18 months of curbed travel.
The move comes just two days after the US said it would reopen its borders with Canada and Mexico to double jabbed travellers, who also require a negative test within three days of leaving.
