USA allowed to visit the country with a transfer in Europe

Before leaving the presidency of the United States, Donald Trump lifted the ban on foreign travel to the United States. We are talking about countries that are in the Schengen area, Great Britain, Brazil and Ireland 14 days before departure or less. The ban has been in effect since March 2020.

By decree of January 18, 2021, which will enter into force on January 26, 2021, foreigners are allowed to fly to the United States with a stopover in Europe.

The reason for the lifting of the bans is the beginning of mandatory testing for all arrivals to the United States on January 26. All tourists must present a certificate of passing the test for COVID-19, with a shelf life of up to 3 days.

The right to enter is granted exclusively to European countries and Brazil, since the country is cooperating with the States on testing. The travel bans for foreigners from China and Iran are still in place.

On January 20, the inauguration of the new head of state, Joe Biden, will take place in America, who may cancel the new decree of the previous president.

This was stated by Biden’s spokeswoman Jen Psaki, recalling that the situation with the pandemic is worsening, mutations of the virus appear in the world and that it is not at all the time to remove restrictions on international travel. That is why the new authorities are not ready to abandon the current restrictions on entry into the country from January 26, 2021.

We also recall that the Smart Control Room system was presented in Venice, with the help of which it will be possible to track the behavior of tourists and control the number of visitors during the high season.

You can find out where you can fly now and what travel restrictions are in effect in our new section “Restrictions”. There you can also subscribe to notifications about changes in the regime of entry to the country of interest or in all directions.
