On Tuesday, April 20th, the United States added a substantial amount of countries to the State Department’s “Do Not Travel” list – Canada, Mexico, France, and Israel making just a small fraction. This is due to the increasingly high levels of COVID-19 amongst these countries.

Before Tuesday, the State Department listed 34 out of about 200 countries as “Do Not Travel.” It now lists a total of 150 countries at Level Four (Do Not Travel). They have declined to say when updates would be completed.

Although these travel recommendations are not all mandatory, the majority of Americans have already been stopped from traveling to some of these countries such as Canada, China, and most countries in Europe due to their own mandatory laws during this time.

All in all, if you are a US citizen it’s up to you to decide whether travel to international destinations is a good idea, as long as you are allowed into that country. If you want expert input on your decision to travel or not, you should take into consideration the information the US State Department and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide Covid-19 risk assessments by country.

My experience with Visaplace has been excellent. I’ve received prompt and accurate assistance at a very fair price. Fadi and Mansi were knowledgeable, professional and extremely courteous. Immigration issues are not easy to deal with. Having VisaPlace behind you certainly makes the various processes so much easy to deal with.

Mansi was a helpful guide through the complex procedures involved in my application. I can’t imagine trying to get through the process alone. I highly recommend the services of VisaPlace to anyone needing help getting the proper documents to attend school in Canada

This firm is effective. The people who work here are knowledgeable and attentive. From the first consultation right up until my case was resolved, they made sure I knew what was happening. It’s not an exaggeration to say that without their help, I probably would not have gained entry into Canada.

Bansuri was very helpful in explaining the reason she was asking me certain questions about my upcoming appointment. She was polite, clear and persuasive – excellent qualities for someone who does her job, and really a great first impression for The visa Place. Thank you, Bansuri.

My interaction with Brenda was cordial and professional, she understood what I needed and made sure that I got all my questions answered. Dumb thing to say maybe but I felt her smile coming through the phone. Thank you Brenda!

Thank you for guiding us through this complicated process. Although the first part of our process with Visaplace we felt was slow, they turned it around. In the end we had a good experience with their attorney, she was determined to get it right and deserves to be commended.
