opposes the lifting of a ban on travelers from Europe and Brazil ordered by his predecessor
for Jan. 26, his incoming press secretary
Trump issued a presidential proclamation on Jan. 18 lifting the ban on tourists from the EU’s Schengen spot, the U.K., Ireland and Brazil, due to the fact of his “high confidence these jurisdictions will cooperate with the U.S. in the implementation” of necessary testing for travellers.
Psaki stated on Twitter that “with the pandemic worsening and extra contagious variants rising around the globe, this is not the time to be lifting limits on global vacation.”
On the opposite, she added, the new U.S. administration plans “to bolster community overall health steps around intercontinental vacation,” suggesting that Biden will consider techniques to cancel Trump’s decision in the subsequent couple of days.
Current U.S. travel limitations are very similar to those people in location with slight variants in the course of Europe. The U.K. is now forcing even its very own citizens to examination just before re-entering the country, and forces tourists into quarantine just before submitting them to a 2nd examination soon after five days.
Tests prerequisites will make travel a lot more difficult, specifically considering that few airports are equipped to deal with the disruptions and extensive delays included in official checks. And with uncertainty about the virus’s new variants, restrictions are probable to tighten, not soften, in the next several months.
