Immigration News: DHS Announces Lifting of Travel Restrictions on Certain Arriving Flights

| Sep 18, 2020 | Immigration, News

On September 15, 2020, DHS announced the lifting of travel restrictions on arriving flights carrying passengers who had recently been present in China, Iran, the Schengen Area, the U.K., Ireland, and Brazil. Previously, these travel restrictions mandated that flights carrying passengers from these areas must land at one of 15 designated U.S. airports that implemented enhanced entry screening requirements. Going forward, flights carrying passengers from these areas will no longer be required to land at one of the 15 designated U.S. airports.
