Laura Whitmore has shared her excitement over returning to the US

Laura Whitmore has headed off to the US now the travel ban has been lifted for double-vaccinated Brits.

The 36-year-old shared her excitement over being able to return to America in a post on her Instagram account this morning, whilst en route to her stateside destination.

The Love Island host shared a selfie of herself on board her flight as well as a photo of two Virgin Atlantic representatives celebrating the resuming of such travel.

In the caption, she wrote: “US is open! It’s been a while.” Laura told her 1.5 million followers that she was travelling to New York and added that she was “so excited to be back.”

She also wrote: “Wearing my friend @lilcola beautiful new merch for the flight, adored with her gorgeous lyrics celebrating 10 years of Cinderella’s eyes. Love this album!”

It comes amid the reopening of the US to double-vaccinated visitors from the UK. Previously, only a limited number of individuals had been allowed entry from the UK.

It’s understood that British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operated synchronised departures from Heathrow Airport in London to JFK Airport in New York earlier this morning.

In her post on social media earlier, Laura shared a video of the two planes taking off – prior to boarding her own flight – with cheers heard from those watching beside her.

The UK Government website states visitors to the US need to be fully vaccinated “with any Covid-19 vaccine approved for emergency use by the World Health Organisation or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”

And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website states that non-citizens are also required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test result or evidence that they’ve recently recovered from the virus, prior to travel.

Laura has spoken previously about having undertaken a semester abroad whilst at university, with the journalism graduate an alum of Boston University in Massachusetts.

She told the Times back in 2018: “When I was 21, I studied in the US for five months. In my final year of journalism at Dublin City University, we had the option to go abroad.”

The TV presenter said she was “always” going to choose to study in Boston, adding that she “loved the idea” of being somewhere that had such strong ties to her native Ireland.
