It is important to note that the ban on travel from India wouldn’t apply to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or their spouses.
Other individuals that might qualify for exemptions include humanitarian workers, certain journalists and academics, and students commencing studies in the fall, according to a determination by the State Department for travelers deemed to be in U.S. national interests.
