As the world works to slow the spread of coronavirus, countries have imposed a variety of travel restrictions.

The measures range from suspending international flights and banning travelers from impacted countries, to requiring citizens or foreign nationals to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.

Government officials across the globe say the travel bans are critical to containing the rapidly spreading coronavirus. Worldwide, more than 14,600 people have died from the virus, and more than 336,000 have been infected, according to Johns Hopkins data. In the U.S. alone there are more than 33,200 confirmed cases with the death toll at 417.

The following is a running list of travel restrictions compiled from government agencies and elected officials. For other countries, check the country-specific U.S. Embassy website

United States

All foreign nationals from China, Iran and certain European countries are barred from entering the United States. This ban includes anyone who visited these countries within the 14 days prior to their U.S. trip. 

The targeted European countries include Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. President Donald Trump later added the United Kingdom and Ireland to this list.

On March 18, the president announced the border between Canada and the U.S. would close for nonessential travel. The border closure will be reviewed after 30 days, officials said.

On March 19, the State Department urged Americans not to travel abroad at all. It issued a Level 4 advisory for travel abroad: “do not travel.” 

As the number of coronavirus cases in America climbs toward 2,000 and President Trump's 30-day ban on European flights to the U.S. takes effect, the Department of Homeland is routing returning Americans, permanent residents, their families and other exempted foreigners to 13 major international airports. The majority of these airports are gateways to the U.S. and were also used to screen airline passengers returning from China earlier this year.
