A new directive issued by the Department of Homeland Security instructs U.S. border agents to issue travel permits to anyone who “travels” from any point in the world between January 1, 2021 and November 15, 2021.
The directive also mandates that all travel-related transactions be recorded in a database that is publicly available, and that agents must comply with all relevant federal and state laws.
Travelers are required to submit travel- related documents, including passports and other travel documents.
The DHS has also been working with the TSA to develop an updated travel ban for travelers.
Travelers will be required to fill out a form at the U.N. border in order to enter the U, or at a U. S. Embassy or Consulate in another country.
The order will not apply to those who have traveled to the US. by air, sea, or by air or sea transport from abroad.
The DHS also issued an emergency travel ban on Friday, and the Department is urging travelers to remain vigilant at airports and at the border.
It is also encouraging travelers to monitor the UCCs website for updates on travel restrictions.
