US Travel Ban India: US to ban travel from India from Tuesday midnight | World News


WASHINGTON: The Biden administration will restrict travel from India of non-US citizens from May 4 to prevent Covid-19 variants from entering the country.
The new restrictions are being imposed on the advice of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and they come “in light of extraordinarily high Covid-19 case loads and multiple variants circulating in India,” the White House said. The restrictions, which will kick at midnight on Tuesday, do not apply to American citizens and permanent residents with ties in the US. The ban will exclude aid workers and not effect the flow of aid and humanitarian assistance to India. A formal announcement on the matter is expected late on Friday.

The restriction on travel from India follows similar bans on South Africa, Brazil, UK, Ireland, China, Iran, and other countries that saw Covid-19 spikes and variants at various points in time. The ban comes on the heels of the State Department’s Level 4 Travel Advisory, the highest level it issues, advising US citizens “not to travel to India or to leave as soon as it is safe to do so due to the current health situation in the country.”
