The United States wull lift some restrictions on international travelers to the United States, with the proviso that each traveler is fully vaccinated, the White House announced on Friday.

The change in policy is slated to take effect on November 8.

Travelers will be required to provide proof of vaccination and the last dose of the vaccine must have been delivered at least two weeks, or more, prior to the date of entry to the United States.

Under the new rules, in addition to being fully vaccinated, travelers will be required to show a pre-departure negative coronavirus test that was taken within three days before boarding for travel.

The news comes on the heels of a major policy shift announced earlier in the week that relaxed transborder travel restrictions at land-border crossings with Canada and Mexico, also permitting fully vaccinated individuals to enter the country.
