NJ to issue travel restriction to protect tourists

NJ has temporarily restricted travel to parts of New York State, New Jersey and Connecticut as part of its state-wide ban on people from six Muslim-majority countries entering the U.S. on Jan. 20.

The New York-New Jersey State Division of Travel announced Thursday that travelers from six countries with no recognized legal status, including Iran, Sudan, Syria, Somalia and Yemen, will be required to submit an official travel itinerary prior to entering the United States.

The restrictions will apply to travelers between Jan. 6 and Jan. 21, according to a release from the Division of Tourism.

The announcement comes a day after President Donald Trump’s administration issued a temporary travel ban that had been set to expire on Feb. 3.

It included all six countries.

The U.N. has called on all nations to comply with the temporary travel restrictions and has asked states to submit a travel itineraries to the U., UN chief Antonio Guterres and the U-N secretary general.

The United States has also imposed travel restrictions to and from Cuba, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.
