On December 24, 2021, the White House announced that, effective 12:01 a.m. Eastern time on December 31, 2021, persons from eight African nations will no longer be restricted from entry to the United States, as long as they have met the COVID-19 vaccination requirements under Proclamation 10294 and the related travel requirements issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for travel to the United States. This change comes nearly a month after the White House initially issued Proclamation 10315, which suspended and limited the entry of certain immigrants and nonimmigrants who were physically present in the Republics of Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe and the Kingdoms of Eswatini and Lesotho, out of concern for the COVID-19 Omicron variant.
