Fully-vaccinated and ready to take your long-delayed European vacation?
Don’t book that ticket just yet – as President Biden’s actions may soon ruin your travel plans… yet again.
While the EU has opened its borders to Americans, Biden refuses to reciprocate – and European leaders are fed-up and done with his games, so now they’re threatening to close their borders to Americans in response.
This past June, the EU recommended member states should allow unvaccinated Americans back in for non-essential travel.
The UK has allowed unvaccinated Americans in since the beginning of August.
While the rules of travel for U.S. citizens vary by country – Europe has essentially welcomed back Americans with open arms.
Americans longing to visit Europe have taken advantage of the warm welcome and eagerly booked a European vacation.
Yet here at home, Biden still refuses to lift the travel ban for many countries, and his administration will not say for how long – keeping the world in the dark.
And what’s most infuriating is there is no real logic behind such travel bans.
The Atlantic reported:
“Current limitations are a patchwork effort with seemingly little science or reason behind them. The Biden administration has banned Europeans from visiting, even though the European Union and the United Kingdom have a higher vaccination rate than the United States…
The Biden administration hasn’t defended the particulars of the ban—why Germany, but not Turkey?—but it recently confirmed that the limitations would stay in place.”
And what does the rest of the world think?
Let’s just say European leaders are annoyed and threatening to strike back.
EU President Ursula von der Leyen did not hold back her thoughts in an interview with German news outlet RND.
“The epidemiological situation in the US and the EU today is very similar. We need to solve the problem as soon as possible and are in contact with our American friends. This must not drag on for weeks,” von der Leyen told RND.
Von der Leyen’s comments come as the entry ban for European travelers to the U.S. persists even as the EU has lifted the entry restrictions for US citizens in June.”
Even the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) wrote a letter to Biden urging him to lift the travel ban – hinting that if he doesn’t, even vaccinated travelers may be banned from Europe.
Irish Central reported:
“In its letter published on August 11, APEX says:
“Thank you for your administration’s leadership in public discussion on reopening America for vaccinated individuals from Europe. Many of these European nations have warmly opened their arms to vaccinated Americans.
The United States must now reciprocate before Europe’s doors are closed to vaccinated Americans, as hinted at last week by the European Commission President.
“On behalf of the millions of vaccinated airline passengers across Europe, we ask for you, Mr. President, to reopen the doors to the United States now.”
Biden’s team is “talking about it,” but there’s no plan yet on how they will proceed.
Even Canada is allowing fully-vaccinated Americans back in for non-essential travel…
… yet the United States still won’t let Canadians cross the border by land – only by air.
When pressed on how long the border will be closed, Biden’s team fired off a snarky remark.
“We rely on the guidance of our health and medical experts, not on the actions of other countries,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, declining to offer any timetable for when the administration might ease travel restrictions that bar much of the world from the United States.
Yeah, and how’s that working out?
Or the “experts” who promised if Americans got vaccinated, it would be their ticket to finally ditch the mask?
It’s clear the “experts” main focus is creating more oppressive mandates which the government then happily forces onto free citizens.
You know America has officially gone off the deep end when leaders around the world are publicly criticizing liberal leaders like Biden.
But Biden’s main concern isn’t freedom – it’s control.
So before you book your European vacation– hold off for a few.
Sorry to be the one to break it to ya – but Biden just might ruin your travel plans, yet again.
Do you think Biden should immediately lift all travel bans?
