President Joe Biden issued a proclamation Monday reinstating restrictions on travel from most European countries and Brazil and imposing new restrictions on travel from South Africa. The U.S. is also poised to implement a new COVID-19 testing requirement on international air travelers.
Additional Information: The Trump administration moved to lift the “physical presence” bans on Brazil, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the Schengen Area days before President Trump left office. Biden’s incoming White House spokesperson immediately indicated the new administration would not lift the bans. Today’s proclamation formally extends the restrictions. In addition to the countries listed above, physical presence bans remain in place for China and Iran. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, spouses and children of U.S. citizens and a limited number of others are exempt from the bans. The bans will remain in place until the White House lifts them.
