#international_vision, US President Joe Biden has signed an order forcing foreigners to fly to America to get vaccinated against Covid-19, lifting the severe travel restrictions that were imposed on China, India and many European countries.

This decision to update the health restrictions imposed by America due to the Corona virus pandemic will be effective starting from the eighth of November 2021.

The White House confirmed that children under the age of 18 and the elderly with health problems would be exempted from the new rules.

Non-tourist travelers from about 50 countries with vaccination rates of 10 percent or less will get an exception to the rules, and they will need to be vaccinated within 60 days of arriving in the United States.

Among those countries are: Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria, Armenia, Myanmar, Iraq, Nicaragua, Senegal, Libya, Ethiopia, Zambia, Congo, Kenya, Yemen, Haiti, Chad and Madagascar.

Air travelers will have to provide proof of vaccination against Covid-19 from an "official source", and airlines must ensure that the passenger receives the second dose at least two weeks before the date of travel.

The White House said Americans who did not get vaccinated and foreigners who do get an exception will have to submit a negative test for Covid-19, one day before departure.
