From or Through Brazil
The Trump Administration has imposed a temporary ban on travel to the United States from most persons who have recently resided in or transited through Brazil. The travel restrictions were announced late in the evening on Sunday, May 24, 2020, after the President signed a Presidential Proclamation on the matter.
Excepted from the ban are U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, close relatives of U.S. citizens, some diplomats, and permanent residents, and flight crew members. With Sunday's announcement, persons traveling from Brazil join persons traveling from China, Iran, the United Kingdom, and the countries of the European Union in being barred from entering the United States because of the coronavirus pandemic.
While not issued until the evening of Sunday the 24th, the proclamation was previewed earlier in the day by Trump National Security Advisor Robert Obrien. Appearing on that morning's "Face the Nation" program, Obrien asserted the Administration's "hope that it will be temporary but because of the situation in Brazil, we're going to take every step necessary to protect the American people." With respect to travel to the United States from other nations in the Southern hemisphere, Obrien said, "as of now I'd say Brazil. We'll take a look at the other countries on a country-by-country basis."
