US to lift COVID-19 international travel restrictions on Monday

Starting Monday, a surge in international travelers will be coming to the United States as the country lifts the ban originally put in place in early 2020 to stop the spread of COVID-19.
International airports like JFK can expect to see a jump in passengers.
Tourists from places like Europe, the United Kingdom, South Africa, India, Brazil and China will be welcomed in the U.S. as long as they are vaccinated.
Many airlines are already saying they expect to see double the passengers on their flights starting Monday.
Delta Airlines said it expects many of its international flights to be full and in strong demand.
Under the new rules, inbound non-citizens will have to show proof that they are fully vaccinated before they fly into the U.S.
They must also show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days prior to their travel.
New contact tracing rules will also take effect.
There are exemptions, though, to these new requirements. This includes international travelers under the age of 18, as not all countries have yet approved COVID-19 vaccines for children.
The U.S. is also exempting travelers from 50 countries that have low vaccine availability.
