Washington: The United States, which closed its borders to most foreign travellers as the coronavirus pandemic took hold, plans to allow fully vaccinated visitors to enter the country, a White House official said Wednesday.

Washington is developing “a phased approach that over time will mean, with limited exceptions, that foreign nationals travelling to the United States — from all countries — need to be fully vaccinated,” the official said, without specifying a timeframe.
