01:42 – US Travel Ban: National Interest Exception

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in numerous presidential proclamations restricting travel and entry into the United States.

The majority of travellers from China, Iran, Brazil, South Africa, Schengen Area, United Kingdom, Ireland, and India 14 days prior to seeking entry to the US are prohibited from entering the country.

Despite having more vaccine doses on hand, the US vaccination rate has been falling steadily since 13 April, according to Our World in Data. Considering this information, it is not clear when the US will lift the travel ban.

In the meantime, the US authorities have introduced National Interest Exceptions (NIE), which allow travel to the US for individuals whose entry is of national interest.

Since the pandemic began, the criteria for “National Interest Exceptions” have evolved

To enter the United States, individuals subject to the travel restrictions must typically first obtain a US National Interest Exemption (NIE) by applying with the local US consulate in their home countries for special permission to travel.

To be eligible for NIE, you should belong to one of the categories below.
