White Paper: Making Travel Plans? Here’s the Short-Term Outlook

Nov 15, 2021 | Consular Services & Travel

As the holidays approach and travel increases, several countries are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases once again. Risk assessments and tricky entry and exit requirements vary from country to country. The situation is obviously more complex and inconvenient for unvaccinated travelers than for the vaccinated, but even the latter have risk-mitigation considerations and requirements to meet.

Meanwhile, the United States opened up travel for vaccinated people as of November 8, 2021 and is no longer banning entry based on country of origin. With respect to processing at U.S. embassies and consulates, delays have increased, and services and appointments are not available everywhere.

So as to provide an in-depth look at the state of global travel, WR Immigration has produced a white paper on this subject. For a complete picture of how the changes in travel restrictions relates to you, consider attending our webinar led by Managing Partner, Bernie Wolfsdorf, and Partner Avi Friedman on Nov. 18, 2021, at noon Pacific.
