To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he has had discussions with representatives of the US Administration on the basis on which people who have received the AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine would be admitted to the US for as long as that vaccine has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.

The Prime Minster and President Biden have made clear the importance of bringing about the return of safe trans-Atlantic travel as soon as possible. Department for Transport Ministers are in regular contact with US partners on driving forward this goal.

The newly formed joint UK-US Experts’ Working Group is now underway, and we are working closely with our US partners on delivering the practical solutions to effectively restoring travel.

We are hopeful that vaccines will play an important role in normalising travel between the UK and US and confident that the AstraZeneca vaccine will underpin this for UK citizens.
