US to End Vaccine Mandate for International Visitors

The Biden administration has announced that it plans to end the pandemic’s classification as a public health emergency on May 11.

Today, the U.S. government is releasing the National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan – which will enable America to move forward safely, sustaining and building on the progress that the government made over the past 13 months. This plan lays out the roadmap to help Americans fight COVID-19 in the future as we begin to get back to our more normal routines.

 U.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Policy Tori Emerson Barnes issued the following statement on the introduction of H.R. 185, a bill to end the requirement for proof of COVID-19 vaccination for international visitors to the United States:



“We have long supported the removal of this requirement and see no reason to wait until the May expiration of the public health emergency—particularly as potential visitors are planning spring and summer travel.

Every day this policy remains in place encourages some travelers to avoid the U.S., costing us valuable visitor spending and delaying our efforts to reignite inbound travel.

“The U.S. is the only country that still has this requirement for international visitors when there is no longer any public health justification. We thank the bill’s sponsors for their efforts to remove this outdated, Covid-era policy and normalize inbound travel operations.”
