Travel restrictions will likely remain in place for the duration of President Donald Trump’s first year in office, but travelers are being advised to check with their travel agencies and travel agents to be prepared for changes.
The Department of Homeland Security said it is “working with our industry partners to address the potential impacts of President Trump’s Executive Orders,” according to a press release, but the administration is also advising travelers to avoid Mexico.
“Travelers with concerns should review the following guidance, which will help them better plan for their travels and stay informed on future travel opportunities,” the release stated.
The restrictions will be in place in Mexico from Nov. 6 to Feb. 3.
The travel restrictions are likely to be in effect for the remainder of the Trump administration, with a transition period beginning Feb. 1.
However, if the restrictions are lifted in a short time frame, the restrictions will expire at the end of the transition period.
The president is expected to announce the lifting of the restrictions during his State of the Union address on Feb. 10.
