Biden and Europe/UK travel ban.

Wed May 19, 2021 7:30 pm

Does anyone know when Biden might lift the travel ban on the UK and EU? What is holding him back from moving forward on this?

Lack of expected reciprocity would be my guess.

Actually that's not correct. The EU will permit vaccinated Americans to visit. The problem is not many Europeans have been vaccinated (but hey, don't let that stop you from visiting as we need your tourist dollars) in comparison so there's probably a reluctance to let them into the US.

Yes, Europe/EU has actually been more active lately in plans to lift travel restrictions:
https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/news/e ... countries/
The US state Dep. has placed most of Europe in cat 4 "do not travel" just one month ago, even countries with lower COVID-19 incidence.
I hope we'll hear news from the US side soon. But as said, Europe needs US tourists more than vice versa. We are lagging behind with vaccinations, but that will look much better in a month or two..and even the intra-European travel is far from free right now!

I plan to visit NYC at the end of next November, I hope Europeans can travel to the US at this moment.

Since there's no good way to verify vaccination, I'd take a wild guess that the trigger will be a certain overall percentage vaccinated. No clue what that percentage might be, of course. There's probably also an element of "let's just wait a bit and see."

There was a rumour going around that an announcement may be made between the UK and USA at the G7 summit in Cornwall, UK coming up. But of course the situation is fluid and UK seems to be backtracking on opening up then moving forwards.

The U.S. State Department has updated the travel advisories on June 8:

Most of Europe was cat 4 previously, now for example France in 3, Finland and Norway 2 etc.
Will we see something soon regarding travel to the U.S. from Europe?
