The U.S. State Department has extended a temporary policy that allows some U.S. citizens to return to the U.S. on an expired passport. The policy was set to expire on March 31, 2022, and will be extended until June 30, 2022.
Additional Information: U.S. citizens are reminded that all air travelers, regardless of their vaccination status, must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within one day of their flight’s departure to the U.S. Individuals wishing to renew their expired passport can find processing times and instructions here.
BAL Analysis: While the extension will ease travel procedures for some U.S. citizens returning to the U.S., it only applies to a limited number of travelers. BAL continues to urge individuals to consult their BAL professional before planning international travel, as policies may change with little notice and could affect travelers’ ability to re-enter or return to the U.S.
