127 countries/regions worldwide have lifted entry restrictions related to new crowns

Two new countries have recently been added to the list of countries that have completely lifted their new crown-related vaccination restrictions: India and Somalia.

The summary of the list of new crowns whose entry restrictions have been lifted has increased to 127.

However, we have also seen that some visa application centers and even consulates in first-tier cities are currently closed because of the epidemic prevention and control around the world. For example, visa centers in Beijing for Belgium, Denmark, Malta, Slovakia, Austria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, France, Netherlands, Cyprus, Israel and Brazil are all closed.

Others, like the U.S. Consulate in Shanghai, have also issued an announcement: If you arrived in Shanghai within the last five days, you may be denied access to the shopping center where our consulate is located after November 24. As a result of this, applicants going to Shanghai for an interview with the U.S. Consulate are advised to arrive five days early.

I hope the epidemic will fade quickly and everything will return to normal.

Next, take a look at the list of those who have lifted the restrictions on entry of new crowns, as follows.
