The White House has announced that the US has removed the Covid vaccine mandate for all international passengers, as the country ends its Covid emergency status. While vaccination remains important for advancing the health and safety of employees and promoting efficiency in workplaces, the White House stated that these measures are no longer necessary.


The requirement for coronavirus testing was removed in June 2021, but the vaccination policy for foreign travellers was still in place until now. In February, the House of Representatives voted to end the last remaining pandemic restrictions on May 11.
