The United States will drop a requirement for travellers to test negative for COVID-19 before entering the country.
The change will come into force at midnight on Sunday for all passengers arriving by plane.
Travellers will no longer have to show proof of a negative COVID test.
Kevin Munoz, the White House assistant press secretary, tweeted that Joe Biden’s work on vaccines and treatments was “critical” to the development.
He said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will monitor “based on the science and in context of circulating variants” but for now deemed testing was no longer necessary.
