When Will the USA Lift Travel Restrictions for Indians? USA Embassy Official Don Heflin Answers


With the new academic session beginning in US schools and universities in August, it is time for Indian students to hustle since the situation has become more difficult due to difficulties like travel restrictions, Covid-19 vaccinations, and so on.

Minister-counsellor for consular affairs in US Embassy New Delhi, Don Heflin, provided a clear picture of when the USA can eliminate travel restrictions for Indian students, whether Indian students will require a second vaccination after arriving in the USA, and so on in an exclusive interview to Hindustan Times’ Aditi Prasad.


On Travel Restrictions

Also at present, no one can travel from India to the United States if they have spent the last 14 days in India. There are exceptions for American citizens, students, and those who can demonstrate that their visit to the US is in the national interest. “When the travel restrictions will be lifted is difficult to predict. However, one signal for India would be the removal of travel restrictions from Europe’s Schengen area, which was imposed before India. When other countries eliminate their restrictions, India may anticipate the US travel ban to be lifted “Don Heflin stated The Schengen zone includes 26 European nations, including France, Germany, Italy, and Denmark.
