May 24, 2020 – President Donald J. Trump’s statement about the suspension of entry as immigrants and non-immigrants from certain additional people who are at risk of transmitting the new corona virus.
In the Proclamation 9994 dated March 13, 2020 (Stating the National Emergency Regarding Coronavirus Novel Diseases (COVID-19)), I stated national emergency recognizes the threat caused by the (new) corona virus known as SARS-CoV-2 against our Nation’s health care system. It is the United States policy to respond to the ongoing and unprecedented epidemic of COVID-19 (a disease caused by SARS-CoV-2) with every tool and resource available to the United States Government. Consistent with this policy, I have suspended and restricted the entry of aliens recently present in certain foreign jurisdictions where a significant outbreak of COVID-19 has occurred. These jurisdictions include the People’s Republic of China (excluding the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong and Macau), the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Schengen Territory, the United Kingdom (excluding overseas territories outside Europe), and the Republic of Ireland.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a component of the Ministry of Health and Human Services, which works in close coordination with the Department of Homeland Security, has determined that the Republic of the Brazilian Federation experienced the spread of people into the transmission of people from SARS-CoV-2. On May 23, 2020, the World Health Organization reported that the Republic of the Brazilian Federation had 310,087 confirmed COVID-19 cases, which was the third highest number of confirmed cases in the world.
The potential transmission of an undetectable virus by an infected person wishing to enter the United States from the Brazilian Federation Republic threatens the security of our transportation system and infrastructure and national security, and I have determined that it is in the interest of America. Countries to take action to limit and suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants or non-immigrants, of all aliens who were physically present in the Republic of the Brazilian Federation for a period of 14 days before their entry or attempt to enter the United States. The free flow of trade between the United States and the Republic of the Brazilian Federation remains an economic priority for the United States, and I remain committed to facilitating trade between our countries.

TRUMP, President of the United States, by the authority given to me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, including sections 212 (f) and 215 (a) of Immigration and National Law, 8 USC 1182 (f) and 1185 (a), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, hereby find that unlimited entries to the United States from the persons described in section 1 of this proclamation will, except as provided in section 2 from this proclamation, is detrimental to the interests of the United States, and that their entries must be subject to certain restrictions, limitations and exceptions.
