President Joe Biden issued an official proclamation Tuesday rescinding travel restrictions for foreign nationals “physically present” in eight countries in Southern Africa.
BAL Analysis: The lifting of restrictions will ease travel from the countries covered by the ban; however, other COVID-19 travel restrictions and entry requirements remain in place and may change with little notice. Services at consulates abroad remain limited, and the State Department said that the lifting of restrictions “does not necessarily mean” that local embassies and consulates will be able to “immediately schedule all affected applicants for visa interviews.” Applicants should check the relevant embassy or consulate website for information on what services are available and for information on how to apply for a visa. Employers and employees should continue to consult their BAL professional before planning international travel.
