 News Brief: White House Lifts Covid Vaccine Mandate for International U.S. Visitors

The Biden Administration announced on Monday that it will lift the Covid Vaccine Mandate for international travelers effective May 12. This means that International visitors to the United States will no longer be required to be fully vaccinated against the virus nor will they need to show proof of vaccination. As summer travel picks up, this move also makes it likely that the country will soon see a surge in inbound arrivals. This could mean a significant point of growth for the U.S. travel industry at large as inbound arrivals from overseas have remained below pre-pandemic levels. Learn more.
