US to reopen borders to fully vaccinated travellers from 33 countries

The US says it will reopen its borders to fully vaccinated travellers from 33 countries on November 8.
Under new rules announced by the White House, vaccinated people who have had a negative test 72 hours before travelling will be allowed to enter.
The move marks the end of the tough restrictions that have been imposed on travellers since early last year.
The current rules bar entry to most non-US citizens who have been in the UK, China, India, South Africa, Iran, Brazil or a number of European countries within the last 14 days.
However, the policy has caused controversy, as passengers from 150 other countries, many of whom have struggled with high rates of COVID infection, have continued to enter the US freely.
