US travel restrictions on visitors to the US and UK will be lifted from November – ending 18 months of transatlantic travel uncertainty.

The news will be announced by the State Department on Monday morning and will coincide with the United Nations General Assembly in NYC – where both President Biden and British PM Boris Johnson will speak.

The move would mark the end of intense talks between London and Washington after Britain and the EU lifted restrictions on US visitors – but it was not reciprocated by DC.

Under the current travel policy, only US citizens, their immediate families, green card holders, and those in the national interest exempt are allowed to travel to the US.

UK government sources told MailOnline they expect an announcement later and ‘it looks positive.’

Johnson and Biden set up a dedicated working group in June to take the issue forward, which was followed by talks at the G7 summit in Cornwall.

But progress is said to have stalled on the issue.

Even when international travel restrictions remained in place, Americans took their vacations. The TSA conducted nearly 7 million security checks over Labor Day weekend in the US earlier this month, up from about 3.2 million over last September’s holiday weekend.

The COVID-19 travel restrictions were first implemented in January 2020, when former President Trump suspended travel from China. Two months later, he banned travel from the European Union and the UK.

Biden has kept a strict shutdown for foreign travelers, attracting disappointment from European governments as he slashed the number of cases and reached higher levels of vaccinations.

The European Union began allowing US travelers in late July, only to reverse course and take the US off the safe travel list the following month. The move is said to have been partially motivated by anger from Washington over the lack of reciprocity.
