ORLANDO, Fla. — The United States is set to allow some international travelers to come and visit the county starting Monday.
The move is a big change after many flights were stopped because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The move to allow some international travel, from countries including Brazil and the United Kingdom, is set to give a big boost to tourism in Central Florida.
Travel hubs, including the Orlando International Airport, are preparing to be even busier.
Vaccinated passengers coming into the U.S. must show proof of a negative test within three days of travel.
If not fully vaccinated, a negative test must be taken one day before travel.
“I think that’s a good thing,” traveler Scott Belton said. “I live in Los Angeles, California, and out there they have a lot of requirements for people getting these vaccines. And if California has it, I think it would be a good idea for incoming tourists or incoming visitors from other countries to have that.”
There are exemptions to the vaccine requirement, including children under 18 or people who have medical reasons.
