Biden extends U.S. Travel Restrictions
President Joe Biden on Monday ordered a stay of the travel restrictions for non-US citizens who have been in Brazil, Ireland, the United Kingdom and much of Europe.
Biden also extended the restrictions to travelers who have recently been to South Africa.
As GG&W previously posted, Former President Donald Trump signed an executive order in his final days in office lifting the restrictions on travelers from these countries effective January 26th due to Covid-19.
"The entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of noncitizens who were physically present within the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom (excluding overseas territories outside of Europe), the Republic of Ireland, and the Federative Republic of Brazil during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States, is hereby suspended," the proclamation read in part.
Additionally, as GG&W previously posted, US travelers must have a negative Covid-19 test from within 72 hours prior to travel into the United Kingdom or Ireland, and in conjunction with proof of a completed Declaration of Traveler's Health to enter Brazil. American travelers generally cannot enter countries such as Spain, Germany, France, Italy and Sweden without meeting specific requirements.
