Two vaccine doses needed after Covid-19 recovery for US visit

The United States continues to ban foreigners who have recovered from Covid-19 and then received one dose of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca corona vaccines. In the European Union, this group is generally considered fully vaccinated, but the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) looks at it differently.

The US announced last week that fully vaccinated foreigners will be allowed back into the country as of November 8. These are any combination of WHO approved vaccines that require two doses, or one injection of the Janssen vaccine. Travellers must present a vaccination certificate and a recent negative test result prior to departure.

The Americans enacted a strict entry policy at the beginning of the pandemic, making it virtually impossible to travel to the country without a US passport or residence permit at the moment.
