Read the terms and conditions carefully when zeroing in on a travel plan.

The US had lagged many other countries in lifting such restrictions, and allies welcomed the move.

The White House on Friday announced it will lift travel restrictions for fully vaccinated foreign nationals effective November 8, at land borders and for air travel.
Curbs on non-essential travellers at land borders have been in place since March 2020 to address the Covid-19 pandemic.
The White House announced on September 20 that the United States would lift restrictions on air travelers from 33 countries in early November. It did not disclose the precise date at the time.
