U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) re-opened most Trusted Traveler enrollment centers Sept. 8. The enrollment centers had been closed since March 19 due to COVID-19.
BAL Analysis: Although Trusted Traveler enrollment has resumed, travelers are encouraged to consult with their employer and BAL professional for an individual assessment before planning any international travel. In addition to company policies that may limit travel, multiple travel bans remain in place for foreign nationals entering or returning to the U.S. These include entry bans on individuals who are physically present in Brazil, China, Iran, Ireland, the United Kingdom, or any country in the Schengen region within 14 days of attempting to enter the U.S.; bans on certain immigrants and nonimmigrant work-visa categories; and a ban on nonessential travel across U.S. land borders. Additionally, depending on COVID-19 developments in individual countries, new countries may be added to the physical presence ban with little notice, which could leave travelers stranded abroad.
