The U.S. government has begun enforcing a proclamation banning entry to most foreign nationals traveling from India as nonimmigrants. The White House announced the restrictions on Friday.
Background: Besides India, the U.S. continues to bar entry to most foreign nationals who have been physically present in Brazil, China, Iran, Ireland, South Africa, the United Kingdom or the Schengen Area in the 14 days prior to entering the country. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents and a limited number of others are exempt. Anyone flying to the U.S., including citizens and lawful permanent residents, must provide documentation of a negative viral COVID-19 test taken within three days of travel or evidence of recovery from a recent COVID-19 infection.
BAL Analysis: BAL continues to urge foreign nationals to consult their BAL professional before planning international travel, as travel restrictions may change with little notice and could affect travelers’ ability to re-enter the U.S. BAL continues to monitor the U.S.’s COVID-19 travel and immigration restrictions and will provide additional information as it becomes available.
