United States of America

The US Government has announced entry restrictions to passengers who have traveled to China (excluding Hong Kong and Macau) in the last 14 days prior to arriving to the United States.

American citizens or citizens with a permanent resident card: The Government has declared quarantine for all those who have been to the province of Wuhan or Hubei in the two weeks prior to the intended arrival to the United States. Citizens who have been to other Chinese provinces will be screened, monitored and instructed on how to proceed with self-quarantine.

Foreigners: Entry will not be permitted to those who have been to China in the 14 days prior to the arrival to the intended arrival to the United States for two weeks.

All journeys originating in China will be directed to 10 airports in the United States: New York-JFK, Chicago O’Hare, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Washington, Dallas and Detroit. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) also now has triage zones and quarantine stations in various American airports.

The US Government has also decided to treat all foreign citizens that may have passed through China, as citizens who have effectively been in China and, for this reason, the entry restriction to the USA is also applied to these passengers.

The US Department of Transportation has confirmed that airlines can deny boarding to passengers whom have been to China in the last days, if they present high fevers and shortness of breath. If passengers present the mentioned symptoms, but have not been to China, they will need to present a medical certificate confirming that their condition is not contagious.
