The United States opens the border for full-dose vaccinated foreigners

After nearly 20 months of restrictions on foreign travel, the United States has finally reopened its land and air borders.

Due to the Corona epidemic, then-US President Donald Trump imposed restrictions on foreign travelers entering the United States in early 2020.

On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden took over the presidency of the United States. When he came to power, he upheld the travel restrictions imposed by his predecessor, Trump.

The United States has been criticized for imposing travel restrictions. The issue of US travel bans was particularly unpopular in Europe, neighboring Canada and Mexico.

Millions of people around the world have suffered personally and financially as a result of travel restrictions imposed by the United States for more than a year and a half.
