According to reports President Joe Biden is to lift the travel ban to the US for fully vaccinated travellers in November.
The 18-month blanket travel ban will be lifted and a British government source said they are still awaiting more details, but “it looks like good news.”
It has been reported by Politico that EU diplomats have been placing pressure on the US to reopen travel.
Politico reported, “European Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton is meeting the White House’s COVID coordinator Jeffrey Zients in Washington Monday, and both sides are expected to make the announcement as early as today.
“European diplomats, and the Commission, have been pushing the US for months to lift the ban, which they see as unjustified.
“The lift is expected to apply to Schengen-area citizens, as well as people from the U.K. and Ireland common travel area.”
