Travel Restrictions from India to the United States

On April 30, 2021, the Biden Administration issued a  Presidential proclamation restricting travel to the United States of certain nonimmigrants and noncitizens traveling from India. The travel ban went into effect on May 4, 2021. The travel ban restricts and suspends the entry into the United States of nonimmigrants and noncitizens who were physically present in India during the 14‑day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States. Accordingly, if a noncitizen who has been in India wishes to enter the United States, they must first stay in another country until their last day in India was at least 15 days before. U.S. residents and some noncitizens are exempt from the travel restrictions.

Please feel free to contact any attorney in our immigration law group at Jaffe if you should have questions or if you wish to confirm if you are exempt from the travel restriction.
