New India Travel Restriction

The US will impose travel restrictions from India starting Tuesday, May 4, 2021 from 12.01 am ET (0401 GMT). This is on the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in light of the high COVID-19 caseloads and multiple variants circulating in India. This will restrict entry of non-US citizens into the US for those who have been in India within 14 days of their arrival.

This restriction will not apply to US citizens, permanent residents and other exempted individuals, such as humanitarian workers. Exempted travelers will still need to meet testing and quarantine requirements currently in effect for international travels entering the U.S.

If you are a nonimmigrant visa holder and have plans to travel India we recommend you talk to your employer and your Graham Adair attorney about those plans. It may be advisable to postpone travel while these restrictions are in place.

If you have any questions, please contact your Graham Adair attorney.
