U.S. Government Publishes Effective Date for New Entry Regulations

H. Roske & Associates LLP, October 25th, 2021.

It’s November 8, 2021! The U.S. government has now followed up on its initial comments last month and announced that from this date on, all travelers will once again be allowed to enter the country as long as they

a) Are fully vaccinated
b) Have a valid visa or ESTA
c) Have a negative Covid test (not older than 3 days).

Upon the effective date, the lengthy process of applying for a National Interest Exception (NIE) will no longer be required. For more information on the new regulations, in particular a list of permitted vaccines as well as further answers to the most frequently asked questions, please refer to our newsletter of September 30.
