**6/23/2020 UPDATE** U.S. Customs and Border Protection's website confirms that the travel bans associated with recent Presidential Proclamations are still in place.

The Trump Administration announced that entry would be suspended into the United States for any individual who has been in Brazil within 14 days immediately preceding an attempt to enter the U.S., effective Tuesday at 11:59pm, May 26, 2020. This travel restriction applies to all aliens who were physically present in Brazil during an immediate 14-day prior period and is intended to limit the spread of COVID-19.Similar coronavirus travel restrictions are still in place, which bars entry for certain travelers from China, Iran, the European Schengen area, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. Furthermore, the U.S. recently extended measures until June 22, 2020 with both Canada and Mexico to limit all non-essential travel across borders. Generally, the bans do not apply to US citizens or to certain family members and other specifically exempted individuals, but travelers should refer to the specific proclamation for confirmation. Further details, including a listing of the 13 U.S. airports designated for permitted travelers, are available in a Fact Sheet from the Department of Homeland Security.
