When will the travel ban start
The travel ban will start from May 4. Those who will be given exemption will be allowed to go to America even after the ban. The travel ban is currently on indefinitely until US President Joe Biden decides to remove it.
Exemption from travel ban
Some people have been exempted from this travel ban, including US citizens or permanent residents and their spouses.

Other travelers who have been in India for 14 days before coming to America will also have a travel ban.
Rules for those who reach America
Those who are exempted from the travel ban will have to follow other US regulations set for international travelers.

This report should not be more than three days before reaching America. Whether you have got the vaccine or not, it will not matter.
Passengers will have to undergo another test three to five days after reaching America and will have to quarantine themselves.
