President Biden has issued a new Proclamation suspending the entry into the United States of certain foreign national nonimmigrants who have been physically present in India during the 14‑day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.
The travel ban will go into effect on Tuesday, May 4 and may be continued as necessary. The ban will not apply to persons aboard a flight scheduled to arrive in the U.S. that departed prior to 12:01 AM EDT on May 4, 2021.
