U.S. to Consult Experts From Canada, Other Countries on Post-COVID-19 Travel

The Biden administration is forming expert working groups with Canada, Mexico, the EU and the U.K. to determine how best to safely restart international travel after 15 months of pandemic restrictions, according to a White House official. Another official said the administration would take its time with reopening to allow for the groups to do their work. “While we are not reopening travel today, we hope that these expert working groups will help us use our collective expertise to chart a path forward, with a goal of reopening international travel with our key partners when it is determined that it is safe to do so,” the White House official said. The Biden administration is facing pressure from U.S. lawmakers, airlines, and other groups to restart international travel.
