As time goes by, the United States and the world in general, go through a change towards the new normal.

Little by little, businesses, schools, restaurants and entertainment centers begin to accept more in their facilities; in fact, some are already working at 100 percent capacity.

Although it is clear that the fight against the disease has not been won, and thousands of infections and deaths are still detected around the world, the United States has chosen to open its borders.

Measures for non-essential tourists in the US

Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Defense, announced the measures that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention together with the Department of Security of the North American country are going to implement to allow non-essential passenger access within its delimitation.

19 months have passed since the closure of the world’s busiest border, and the United States government chose to begin allowing entry by land and air to travelers for non-essential purposes.

It is a measure that would imply a gradual return to economic and social activities carried out throughout the region that the United States shares with Mexico.

“Cross-border travel creates significant economic activity in our communities in that region and benefits our overall economy. We are pleased to take steps to resume regular travel in a safe and sustainable manner, ”argued Mayorkas.

Meanwhile, Jeff Zients, coordinator of the Joe Biden administration for the response to the coronavirus pandemic, assured that the new measures to regulate the entry of non-essential people will be carried out from November.

Thus, from next month, non-essential travelers need to comply with the correct and corresponding documentation that ensures that they have the complete vaccination scheme.

However, the country of the stars and stripes will only allow access to those that have been inoculated by the World Health Organization (WHO): Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Sinovac, Sinopharm, Janssen and some versions of AstraZeneca.

Therefore, the CanSino and Sputnik V injections are currently in the pipeline for WHO clearance, so those who have had them still cannot go to the US.

It should be remembered that until last October 12, the United States authorities only allowed access to unvaccinated individuals who had essential purposes such as students, cargo truck drivers and health workers, among others.

Title 19 regulations on the entry of individuals into the United States will be modified in two parts. The first will begin with the opening of borders to non-essential travelers from November. The second will be given in January next year, in which the complete vaccination scheme will be required for both non-essential and essential travelers to ensure their entry into the nation.
