President Biden’s India Travel Ban To Go Into Effect On Tuesday

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.

The suspension of entry, under this Presidential Proclamation, does not apply to

  • U.S. Citizens and immigrants
  • Lawful Permanent Residents
  • Spouse of a U.S. Citizen
  • Spouse of a Green Card holder
  • Unmarried children, under the age of 21, of a U.S. Citizen
  • Foreign diplomats traveling on A or G visas

  • Any foreign national traveling at the invitation of the U.S. Government for a purpose related to containment or mitigation of Covid-19
  • any foreign national whose entry would be in the national interest, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their designees.
    Note: The Secretary of State has determined that the travel of fiance(e)s of a U.S. Citizen, students whose academic program begins August 1, 2021 or later, journalists, is in the national interest
