Reuters announced yesterday that the United States is developing a “new system for international travel” that will include contact tracing. 

The White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients told the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board they do not plan to immediately relax any travel restrictions due to COVID-19 Delta variant cases in the United States and elsewhere. A task force was set up in June to look at reopening the transatlantic routes but as of now, precisely nothing has happened. 

In early August the White House was said to be developing vaccine entry requirements that could cover nearly all non-US visitors. The White House has confirmed it was considering mandating vaccines for foreign international visitors.

    Could somebody advise me, given the “no change” as stated above, how I can enter the US in the coming days in order to be with my dying brother in Florida? I have an up-to-date ESTA as of this week, and am desperate to visit for all the obvious reasons.
    Thank you.

    • I’m so sorry to hear this. If you have a US family member there’s a chance you could be allowed in, especially in the circumstances. Contact the US embassy in London. Only other option is to spend 15 days outside the U.K./Shenghan zone EU first. Turkey is a cheap option. Otherwise Dubai, Caribbean and Mexico are other options. Mexico is red so you’d need to spend 10 days in US before returning to avoid hotel quarantine.

  2. Thanks Michele I was also aware of this ~ holding up in another country, but it’s so frustrating to be ‘pretending’ to be on holiday when I should be somewhere else. I will follow your advice and contact the Embassy as I do have a doctor’s letter supporting my application.
