The US COVID-19 travel restrictions that were scheduled to end today have been renewed. President Biden signed an executive order to renew these restrictions which have been in place since March 13, 2020.

“On advice of our administration’s medical and Covid team, President Biden has decided to maintain the restrictions previously in place for the European Schengen Area, the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, and Brazil. With the pandemic worsening and more contagious variants spreading, this isn’t the time to be lifting the restrictions on international travel,” said Press Secretary Jen Psaki in a White House press conference.
There’s no saying when these travel restrictions will be lifted. They will be re-evaluated each month and stay in effect until the president terminates them.
The “Proclamation on the Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Non-Immigrants of Certain Additional Persons Who Pose a Risk of Transmitting Coronavirus Disease” which outlines the travel restrictions is available to read on the White House website.
