My fiance's K1 visa was approved this week in Romania, a non-Schengen country. We usually travel back and forth from Romania through Budapest to Chicago because there's a non-spot cheap flight with LOT. HOWEVER, because Hungary is a Schengen country, he routed through Turkey this past Christmas when visiting (because of travel "ban" from Schengen).
My question is: If I'm reading this right, does this new proclamation allow for K1 visa holders to enter from any country now without restrictions? Has anyone done this? Is any additional paperwork needed? I feel like airline and airport employees are always the last to know about these new proclamations and allowances. I don't want to risk him being turned away at boarding, or on arrival.
