Most Kenyans may not be required to present their Covid-19 vaccination certificate when travelling to the United States as from next month, new reports indicate.

In the new details of international travel restrictions announced by Biden Administration, children who are under 18 years as well as people who are not fully vaccinated hailing from countries with limited vaccinations capacity will be allowed to enter into the United States.

The new rule which requires most people to be fully vaccinated before entering the US will be exempting citizens from dozens of countries which have vaccinated less than 10 percent of their adults where Kenya is among them.

As of October 23, Kenya ad vaccinated around 6 percent of its adult population.

The administration said that it will require airlines to collect contact information of passengers whether fully vaccinated or not in order to aid in contact tracing in case.

Under the new policy, the administration said, those fully vaccinated will be required to present a negative Covid-19 test proof three days of travel and one day of travel by those who are unvaccinated.

Those who are under 18 will only be required to present a negative Covid-19 test proof.

This is a big win to most unvaccinated Kenyans who wish to travel to the US as the new policy favours them. The administration said that the rules will be effective come 8th of next month.

However, the administration added that the category of people from these nations who are not fully vaccinated must have compelling reasons to travel and not tourism.
