Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, on May 24, 2020 President Trump issued a Proclamation restricting travel to the United States for foreign nationals arriving from Brazil.

WHO IS IMPACTED?

The Proclamation suspends entry to the United States of most foreign nationals, regardless of nationality, who have been in Brazil at any point during the 14 days prior to their scheduled arrival in the United States.

WHEN DOES THE BAN TAKE EFFECT?

According to the Proclamation, the entry restrictions were set to take effect on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 11:59 pm ET. However, the U.S. Consulate in Brazil is now reporting  that restriction will take effect on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 at 11:59  pm ET.

WHO IS EXEMPTED FROM THE BAN?

The entry restrictions do not apply to U.S. citizens, U.S. lawful permanent residents, some immediate family members of U.S. citizens, and some other individuals who are identified in the Proclamation, including certain crew members, foreign government officials and their family members, and E-1 employees of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO), also known as the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) and their immediate family members.

HOW LONG WILL THE BAN REMAIN IN EFFECT?

The ban will remain in effect until further notice.  Gibney is monitoring the implementation of these measures and will provide updates as they become available.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND RESOURCES

The Proclamation restricting travel from Brazil is similar to the bans currently in place restricting travel from China, Iran, Europe, the United Kingdom and Ireland.  Information about U.S.  travel restrictions associated with the coronavirus, including links to some general resources, is available here.
