We’re entering the 4th calendar year of COVID restrictions, and the effects are still being felt by supply chain logistical issues and the US tourism industry.
Back in 2021, the Biden Administration announced that foreign nationals 18 and older would need to be vaccinated for COVID to enter the USA.
That order was set to expire on January 10th, but the TSA announced that they will extend the requirement via an emergency amendment through April 10th. That order will be enforced on all airlines flying to the US.
Nearly all countries have dropped their COVID vaccination requirements except for the US.
Starting tomorrow, passengers flying from China, Hong Kong, or Macau to the US must also show proof of a negative COVID test. Many other countries are also implementing new rules on arrivals from China.
