New Travel Restrictions – A Discussion with US Consular Staff
Newly revised travel restrictions to the United States, announced by the U.S. Department of State on March 2nd, 2021, may impact travelers from the Schengen Zone planning to conduct certain business operations in the U.S. The new regulations, aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19, reduce the scope of qualification for a National Interest Exception (NIE) under Presidential Proclamation (PP) 10143 as related to the Schengen Area, United Kingdom, and Ireland.
To help explain these heightened restrictions, the German American Chambers of Commerce (AHK USA), together with the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), and AmCham Germany, have organized a virtual informational seminar with U.S. Consular Staff from Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich.
