What’s going on with the travel bans? Can I start planning travel to the U.S.?
There’s been a bit of confusion regarding the lifting of the travel bans. On Monday, January 19th, Trump signed an order lifting the travel bans from Ireland, the UK, most of Europe, and Brazil. This news was followed by an announcement from the Biden Administration, stating that they would NOT be lifting any travel bans. Jen Psaki, a Biden spokeswoman stated, “with the pandemic worsening, and more contagious variants emerging around the world, this is not the time to be lifting restrictions on international travel.”As of now, this is a developing story and we will need to see what final decision the Biden Administration makes.
We must remain patient and hopeful that the incoming administration will make decisions that keep us healthy, safe, and hopefully reunited with our loved ones sooner than later.
I understand how painful this situation is, I’m right there with everybody. My family is excited to hopefully be able to see my parents, my kids’ grandparents again, sometime soon. Obviously waiting until it is safe, with vaccines and testing. I know that it’s just been a whirlwind rollercoaster of emotions and separations. I am committed to keeping everybody updated on this situation and will share any travel ban news as soon as it is available.
