US Lowers Outbound Restrictions on Over 100 Destinations for Fully Vaccinated US Travellers

The US has eased traveller recommendations for more than 100 countries and territories and counting. According to the CDC, 61 nations were lowered from the highest “Leve 4” rating, while another 50 countries and territories were lowered to either “Level 2” or “Level 1.” Countries ranked lowest for COVID-19 risks now include Singapore, Israel, South Korea, Iceland, Belize and Albania. Of note, Japan has had its rating lowered despite concerns of a new wave of infections and low vaccination rates. The U.S. also has been in discussions with Canada and Mexico – both of which had recommendations eased – on how to eventually lift or revise restrictions at U.S. land borders that bar non-essential travel.
