How to use the travel ban to get free flights from US, UK and other countries

A travel ban targeting the travel sites of US citizens and permanent residents is likely to be on the agenda as President Donald Trump’s administration gears up for a trip to the US on Tuesday, a new report says.

According to the travel site Expedia, US citizens with US visas and green cards who have visited three or more countries will not be able to use those sites for at least a year.

Those travelers must also have paid a $1,000 US fine to get the ban lifted.

The ban would affect all travel from the United States, including citizens of six nations, as well as the US Virgin Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the US mainland.

The other six are Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand.

But for some Americans, it may be a one-time thing.

Expedia said that the ban was a “temporary” restriction for citizens of the US, US Virgin Islanders and US citizens living in countries other than the US.

For example, it is not yet clear whether Americans in Japan, Canada and Australia could use the sites if they were visiting Japan or Canada.

But expat-based companies could apply to get a waiver from the ban, according to the report.

“We are working to ensure that the travel restrictions will be lifted on the following days and that American citizens visiting those countries will be able use their travel options, including US-based travel,” Expedia’s Mark LeBoeuf wrote.
