The US government extends travel ban for the Schengen area and some additional countries

On January 25, 2020, the Biden Administration extended the travel restrictions for Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Schengen Area, and Brazil and added travel restrictions for South Africa.

Travel restrictions for South Africa go into effect on January 30, 2021 and the others are an extension of existing travel restrictions.

The policy does not contain procedures necessary to request national interest exceptions, likely leaving in place the procedures presently employed.
