23 global travel companies, including the U.S. Travel Association, sent a letter to the Biden Administration on May 13, 2021 pleading with the White House to open the boarders back up to international travel. The letter specifically requests a timeline how when and how the Biden Administration will open the U.S. boarder up to international travel. The request is dire given the economic state of the travel industry is on the swift decline after loosing roughly 150 billion dollars and 1.1 million jobs. Currently, the travel industry is battling the labor shortage across the United States that have left many establishments unable to open due to the lack of assistance.
