New US travel rules to boost bizav

The US government announced that it is to permit fully vaccinated foreign nationals from 33 countries to enter the USA from November, although the exact implementation date has yet to be confirmed. It was anticipated that the relaxation would apply from the beginning of the month, but it is now hoped to be in place for the Thanksgiving holiday on 25 November. The exact requirements are being ironed out, but travellers will have to provide carriers (expected to include bizav operators) with evidence of vaccination status and contact information, along with a negative test result taken within 72 hours of departure. The relaxation will give a huge boost to both commercial and business aviation transatlantic travel after nearly 18 months of restrictions.
