After almost two years of disruption with holidays to America due to the Covid outbreak, they have finally opened their borders once again and are welcoming back people from the UK. This is a fantastic moment for many holiday goers who regularly have trips out to the USA and also those who may have family and friends that they have not been able to go out and see. President Biden said last month that a ban on British holidaymakers would be scrapped, and the date has now been set for the 8th November.
Although people will now be allowed back in to the country there are still some rules and regulations in place. Under the new rules, fully-vaccinated passengers will be allowed to enter the country although they’ll still need to show a negative Covid test certificate, issued within 72 hours of travel.
When the US closed their borders, many businesses were hit and suffered huge financial losses. This news has been a long time coming for many who are now looking forward to being able to welcome much needed tourists back to give their business the boost it needs to survive.
The rules could well change again but many are hoping to get in a quick visit before Christmas.
