New Entry Suspension for those Travelling from Brazil

In an effort to further slow the spread of the coronavirus, President Trump has issued another Presidential Proclamation suspending entry to the U.S. for foreign nationals who have been physically present in Brazil at any point during the 14 days preceding their entry or scheduled arrival to the United States.

Similar to the travel suspensions still in place for foreign nationals traveling from the People’s Republic of China, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Schengen Area (western Europe), the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, this new travel suspension does not apply to the following travelers:
 
  • U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents (“green card” holders);
  • Spouses of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents;
  • Parents and guardians of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, provided the U.S. citizen or permanent resident is unmarried and under age 21;
  • Siblings of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, provided both are unmarried and under age 21;
  • Children, foster children or prospective adoptees of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents; and
  • Other limited exemptions for those traveling at the invitation or discretion of the U.S. government, as well as certain crew members, diplomats and military service members and their families, along with individuals who would facilitate law enforcement objectives or whose entry would be in the national interest.
Please note, these exempted travelers may be routed to designated airports for enhanced screening and/or face quarantines upon entry to the U.S. The suspension took effect at 11:59 PM EST on May 26, 2020 and will remain in effect until terminated by the President.

Please contact Jenifer Brown, Christl Glier, Kristin Kelley, or any other member of Ice Miller’s immigration team to discuss this travel suspension or any other immigration needs.
