ISLAMABAD, SEPT 20 (DNA) – The US is easing its coronavirus travel restrictions, re-opening to passengers from the UK, EU and other nations.

From November, foreign travellers will be allowed to fly into the US if they are fully vaccinated and undergo testing and contact tracing, the White House said.

The US has had tough restrictions on travel in place since early last year.

The move on Monday answers a major demand from European allies at a time of strained relations.

White House Covid-19 coordinator Jeff Zients announced the “new international air travel system”.

“This is based on individuals rather than a country based approach, so it’s a stronger system,” he said.
