06 Aug U.S. State Department Drops ‘Do Not Travel’ Advisory
Great news! The U.S. State Department just lifted its “Do Not Travel” advisory. Read below for more details.
The State Department just dropped its previously set global advisory on avoiding international travel! This advisory was issued back in March.
“With health and safety conditions improving in some countries and potentially deteriorating in others, the Department is returning to our previous system of country-specific levels of travel advice (with Levels from 1-4 depending on country-specific conditions), in order to give travelers detailed and actionable information to make informed travel decisions,” according to a note released by the Department today. “This will also provide U.S. citizens more detailed information about the current status in each country.”
This is the first step in a positive direction and a big step towards a sense of normalcy in travel.
Moreover, the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA), states “We welcome the news that, after more than four months, the State Department is returning to country-specific levels of travel advice as opposed to its prior worldwide Level 4 – Do Not Travel advisory,” ASTA said. “At ASTA, we remain committed to working toward a travel industry restart with federal, state and international governments, our members, travel suppliers and the broader travel ecosystem in a way that puts the safety and health of U.S. travelers at its center, however long it takes.”
You can find a revised list of country-specific travel advice and warnings on the State Department’s website: travel.state.gov.
