New U.S. President Joe Biden leaves Schengen zone citizens’ entry ban in place. According to information from the White House, Biden wants to order on Monday to reverse the lifting of this ban ordered by predecessor Donald Trump.
The new U.S. President Joe Biden leaves in force the ban on entry of citizens of the Schengen area, which was in place because of the Corona pandemic. Biden will order on Monday to reverse the lifting of entry bans ordered by his predecessor Donald Trump, a White House official said Sunday evening (local time) in Washington. The lifting of the entry bans had been scheduled to take effect this Tuesday.

As the White House official announced, contrary to Trump’s order, not only the entry ban for travelers from the Schengen area remains in effect, but also the entry ban for people who want to travel to the US from Ireland, the UK and Brazil.

The move by the new U.S. president does not come as a surprise. After Trump ordered the lifting of the entry bans early last week, Biden had already positioned himself against the measure.

Furthermore, according to the staffer, Biden now wants to impose an additional entry ban on people who have recently been in South Africa. The reason for this additional measure is the new variant of the coronavirus that has appeared in South Africa in recent weeks and is considered particularly contagious.

The entry bans are part of a package of measures against the Corona pandemic that Biden, who has been in office since Wednesday of last week, has initiated. Among other things, he has already ordered that air travel arriving from abroad be quarantined.
