US Keeps Travel Restrictions For Foreigners Due To Delta Variant

The United States will not lift coronavirus entry restrictions imposed on foreign travellers due to the spread of the Delta variant, the White House said on Monday.

“We will maintain existing travel restrictions at this point for a few reasons,” White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said.

“The more transmissible Delta variant is spreading, both here and around the world. Driven by the Delta variant, cases are rising here at home, particularly among those who are unvaccinated,” she said, adding that infections are set to keep climbing “in the weeks ahead.” 

The United States currently bars entry for most non-citizens from European Union countries, Britain, India, China, Brazil, South Africa and Iran.

Psaki said there was no concrete timetable as to when the ban could be dropped.
