0:00 – US Travel Ban End: International Students & More Allowed To Travel
01:37 – The US lifts travel restrictions on international students and more
Coronavirus travel bans that have barred some students from travelling directly from their home countries to the US have been going on for over a year.
Travellers who have been to China, Iran, Brazil, South Africa, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Europe’s Schengen area in the past 14 days have been prohibited from entering the US.
This has greatly affected international students who have previously left the US and could not return for school without lengthy quarantines in another country.
Finally, a light is seen at the end of the tunnel.
The US State Department has announced that it is lifting travel restrictions for students and academics covered by the visitor’s program, from China, Iran, Brazil, South Africa, Schengen Area, United Kingdom, and Ireland, who plan to study in the US later this year.
02:57 – Lengthy US Visa Delays
Despite the eased restrictions, hurdles remain for many incoming international students who still have to apply for their student visas to enter the US.
It has been reported that only about 40% of US consulates are routinely scheduling visa interviews.
Due to the pandemic, large numbers of US consulates around the world are still in hiatus, resulting in increasing US visa backlogs.
04:17 – Educational Institutions Hit Hard
With international students facing lengthy US visa delays, American universities have been hit hard as enrolment numbers slump.
Although many current students remained in the United States throughout the Covid outbreak or chose to study remotely from their home countries, the number of new international students fell more sharply than any other demographic group during the current academic year.
New student-visa holders declined by 72 percent in 2020, according to Homeland Security data.
05:22 – COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout
Several countries, including the US, have been making fast progress immunising their populations.
Millions of shots have been given to Americans, ranking the US as one of the top countries with one of the highest vaccination rates per 100 people.
This has led to lifting restrictions for domestic travel and gradually opening for international travel.
