Coronavirus latest: HOLIDAYS to America will be open to double- jabbed Brits in weeks.
Visits to the likes of Disneyland, Miami and New York could be on from “early November” after a surprise announcement by Joe Biden.
The US border was shut by Donald Trump in March 2020.
Boris Johnson had been lobbying for restrictions to be lifted ahead of a visit with President Biden.
He hailed the breakthrough as “a fantastic boost for business and trade, and great that family and friends on both sides of the pond can be reunited once again”.
Travellers will need to demonstrate proof of vaccination before boarding, as well as proof of a negative Covid test taken within three days of their flight. It was not clear if unjabbed kids will be able to travel with vaccinated parents.
But officials said they were confident the AstraZeneca jab would be recognised despite it not being rolled out Stateside.
The announcement came ahead of talks between Mr Johnson and President Biden at the White House on Monday.
