Many travel restrictions have been put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. From not being able to travel to certain countries to having to be tested before returning to the US, there have been several changes to the way we travel. Now, according to Reuters, the US will not be lifting any travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 Delta variant.
The White House has confirmed that as of right now, all current travel restrictions will remain in place.
“Given where we are today … with the Delta variant, we will maintain existing travel restrictions at this point,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said yesterday. “Driven by the Delta variant, cases are rising here at home, particularly among those who are unvaccinated and appear likely continue to increase in the weeks ahead.”
Travelers hoping to visit the United States from other countries will have to wait a bit longer. Travel to the US is currently banned for most non-U.S. citizens who within the last 14 days have been in the United Kingdom, the 26 Schengen nations in Europe without internal border controls, or in Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil.
Canada has said it will open its borders to fully vaccinated American tourists starting August 9, however, the U.S. Homeland Security Department has said the US land borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed until at least August 21.
There’s no saying when these restrictions might be lifted. Stay tuned for more information and updates!
