NEW: Trump Administration Considers Lifting European Travel Ban
According to recent reports, the Trump Administration is considering removing the current travel restrictions for Europeans traveling to the United States.
The current restrictions prevent visitors from the Schengen Zone's 26 countries, the United Kingdom and Ireland from entering the US if they have been in one of these countries for 14 days prior to their travel. There are certain exceptions to the travel bans - such as the spouses and children of US citizens or green card holders and students studying in the US - but the majority of other travelers must apply for a National Interest Exception in order to travel to the US.
The travel restrictions were put in place in March 2020 as part of the effort to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the White House Coronavirus task force, as well as several federal agenices, have urged the administration to lift the restrictions.
