NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. says that it’s inviting the global community to visit now that the government has ended the ban on travelers from 33 countries.

Even if you are vaccinated, there are months-long delays in getting the visas needed to enter the U.S. And other countries have their own strict rules which complicate foreign travel.
