Re: No more travel to the US!

This is what IATA has told its members:
Quote:
US-Europe Travel
On 11 March, US President Trump signed a Presidential Proclamation suspending and limiting the entry of all aliens who were physically present within the Schengen Area of 26 European countries during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.

The Schengen Area comprises 26 European states: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

The proclamation does not apply to aliens who were present in the UK or Ireland, which are not Schengen area countries, provided they had not also been present in the Schengen area or any other countries covered by previous suspensions (People’s Republic of China and Islamic Republic of Iran) during the 14-days preceding their entry or attempted entry into the US.

The suspension of entry does not apply to:

(i) any lawful permanent resident of the United States;

(ii) close family members (spouses, siblings, parents and guardians) of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident;

(iii) air crew.



There are limited other exceptions, primarily related to official US government business and members of the US armed forces.

As a consequence of the exemption for air crew, this measure does not apply to cargo carriers.

The suspension of entry for affected persons will become effective at 11:59 p.m. eastern daylight time on 13 March. However, it does not apply to persons aboard flights scheduled to arrive in the United States that departed prior to the entry into force.

The Department of Homeland Security announced that a supplemental Notice of Arrivals Restriction will be issued within the next 48 hours requiring U.S. passengers that have been in the Schengen Area to travel through select airports where the U.S. Government has implemented enhanced screening procedures.
Odile, note the last paragraph.
