The Romanian Foreign Ministry has recommended Romanians who want to leave for U.S. in the next perior to check the travel conditions of the airlines and to monitor the official notifications of the authorities. The explanations come after the United States have suspended trips and flights from most European countries over Coronavirus fears, more precisely from the EU countries from Schengen. Romania is not part of the Schengen space, so it is not targeted by the U.S. restrictions.
“The American authorities have decided that, starting March 13, the access to US is banned to people who have been in the past 14 days in one of the states in the Schengen states: Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
There are some exceptions: people who have American citizenship, those who have permanent residence status in U.S, people who are family members of an American citizen.
The Romanian Foreign Ministry recommends Romanian citizens who intend to travel to the USA in the upcoming period to check the travel conditions of the airlines and to monitor the authorities’ official notifications”, says a MAE press release.
