Travel Ban on 13 Countries Expected to Removed on Jan. 20

Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States on Wednesday, Jan. 20. The new president is expected to sign a several Executive Orders on the first day, and one of them is travel related.

Back in 2017, President Trump issued an executive order that banned travelers from seven nations from entering the United States. That order was reworked several times amid legal challenges and the latest version of it was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2018.

Significant restrictions on travel to the U.S. were originally placed on Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Iraq and Sudan were removed, and Chad, North Korea and Venezuela were added.

On Jan. 31, 2020, the current administration banned certain visas from Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria and Tanzania, and re-added Sudan. The new rules would not allow citizens of those countries to settle permanently in the United States.

Now these restrictions are expected to be removed Wednesday, later in the day, after the inauguration ceremony.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last two years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.
