Illinois travel ban: Travel restrictions for anyone visiting the US will begin on Jan. 10 and run through Feb. 6, with some exceptions.
Here’s everything you need to know about those exceptions.1.
Travel to Canada (for everyone): On Feb. 3, Americans will be able to visit Canada for up to six months for one month per person and one month for the next year.
That means you can get to and from the U.S. to Canada within the first week of February, even if you have to make stops to buy groceries, see friends, visit a funeral, or visit your family in Canada.
For example, you could go from the Chicago area to Montreal for three weeks and back within a week of returning, and from Montreal to Toronto for six weeks and return in a week.
You can’t use the same visa for more than six consecutive months.
For Canadians, you need a valid visa issued by your home country.2.
Travel in Europe (for EU citizens): While travel to Europe is allowed from the beginning of Feb. 4, Americans who are citizens of other countries are not allowed to travel to the United States for one year, even though they are not citizens of the EU.
In other words, if you’re a U.K. citizen or a Swiss citizen, you won’t be able visit the U: You’ll have to apply for a non-EU passport to enter the U, which costs about $300.
If you want to visit Europe from the United Kingdom or Switzerland, you can either apply for the EU visa and pay $300 more, or buy a non EU passport.3.
Travel across the Pacific (for everybody): Travel across international borders will be allowed starting Jan. 6.
However, if the U S borders with Mexico, there will be a maximum of two travelers per day.
That will limit your ability to travel on the international airlines, like American Airlines, United Airlines, and Delta Air Lines.

Travel from New York City to Los Angeles: On Feb 5, Americans won’t need a visa to travel between New York and Los Angeles.
However the following day, they will need a U visa to enter New York from Los Angeles, and a visa for LAX from New Orleans.
This means you’ll need a permit from the LA City Department of Transportation (the city’s department of transportation).
If you’re traveling to the US for business or school purposes, you’ll also need a work visa from the US Embassy in LA or consulate in another country, like Mexico.5.
Travel between Europe and Asia (for citizens of all 28 countries): There will be an additional one-way trip from New Zealand to Hong Kong starting on Feb. 5, with all flights ending in Hong Kong.
You will need an international visa for that trip.
The travel from Hong Kong to New Zealand will be the same as before, and the travel from New Guinea to Hong Kong will be one way.
The two flights from Hong K, with no stops in either country, will be available only to people from the countries of origin.6.
Travel by train (for trains): Starting Feb. 12, Amtrak will no longer offer its services to people on the US’s “red list” for the five most dangerous countries.
This includes countries like Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Venezuela, which are on the list due to their human rights abuses.
However there are still certain areas of the world that will be accessible to travelers, like the Middle East and Central Asia.
There will still be Amtrak tickets for these places, but you will need to pay a fee, which is $150 per person.
If your country doesn’t have Amtrak tickets available, you may have to buy them from an airline in the region, which will cost you $150 more.
