Immigration Update: COVID-19 Brazil (E-Blast)
President Trump issued a proclamation extending the COVID-19 travel ban to include Brazil. The original effective date of May 28, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. has been moved up and the travel ban is now in effect. The ban applies to persons in Brazil or who have traveled to Brazil during the 14 days prior to seeking entry to the U.S.
Travel to the U.S. continues to be suspended for persons who have been in China, Iran, the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom, or Ireland within the 14 days prior to seeking entry to the U.S. Limited exceptions to the travel ban apply, including but not limited to U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and certain close family members of U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents.
The U.S./Canada and U.S./Mexico land borders also remain closed other than for “essential travel.”
