President Joe Biden issued a proclamation Friday to bar entry to the country to most foreign nationals traveling from India beginning May 4.
Background: In addition to the upcoming restrictions on travel from 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. The State Department provided additional guidance this week on national interest exemptions. 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 will continue to monitor implementation of the new restrictions and will provide updates on developments. 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.
