The United States of America announced to discontinue all restrictions on international trips from November 2021 on, for foreign national adults who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, as announced by the government of President Joe Biden this Monday (September, 20th, 2021).

The measure applies to all countries including Brazil and replaces the current system which restricts foreign nationals from certain countries and imposes other restrictions, such as mandatory quarantines.

The White House said it goes into effect "from early November" without specifying the exact date. It has not been informed so far which vaccines will be accepted.

It is important to mention that there is no official information yet regarding the reopening of the Consulate from the US in Brazil (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Brasília, Recife, and Belo Horizonte).

According to the communication, foreigners traveling to the US must be fully immunized and present proof of vaccination before boarding. In addition, the country will maintain the requirement that the passenger must present a negative Covid-19 test done up to 3 days before boarding.

According to the White House, the 'CDC' (the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) will be consulted to guide which immunizers will be accepted.

EMDOC remains available in case of questions.
