Trump might lift U.S. and U.K. travel ban in time for holidays

President Trump could lift restrictions on travel between the U.S. and the U.K. on Tuesday — in time for Christmas, according to a report.

A lift on the restrictions would come via executive order, and has been recommended by the Department of Homeland Security, the U.K.’s The Telegraph reported Friday, citing unnamed industry and aviation sources.

The U.K. has also been lobbying the Trump administration to lift the restrictions, which currently ban entry for most non-U.S. citizens who were recently in Brazil, Britain, Ireland and 26 other European countries, Reuters reported.

Trump has mulled opening travel between the two nations since October.

Restrictions barring most visitors from Europe have been in place since mid-March to address the coronavirus pandemic.

Britain currently allows Americans to visit but requires two weeks of quarantine upon landing.
