U.S. House Passes Bill To End Covid Mandate And Allow Unvaccinated Tourists

U.S. House Votes To Eliminate Covid Vaccine Mandates For Visitors

The House of Representatives has passed a bill that would remove the requirement for most foreign travelers coming to the U.S. to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

It doesn’t mean travelers can now enter without a vaccine, the bill still needs to pass through the Senate and Biden for approval.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently mandates that all adult travelers who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents must provide proof of COVID vaccination prior to their flight.

The bill was passed on Wednesday with a vote of 227-201, with seven Democrats aligning with Republicans in favor of the legislation.
