An order was passed by the US government restricting travel to the USA, for non-US-citizens who have been physically present in India in the 14 days prior to their arrival in the USA.
This question is about interpreting the following exception in Section 2. a) viii) :
any noncitizen traveling as a nonimmigrant pursuant to a C-1, D, or C-1/D nonimmigrant visa as a crewmember or any noncitizen otherwise traveling to the United States as air or sea crew;
I have the following three related questions:
Q1: Does this exception apply to any non-immigrant with a C-1 visa, or only those non-immigrants who serve as crew?
Q2: The part of the clause before the first or would imply that anyone can transit with a C-1 visa. Is this interpretation correct?
Q3: According to this page, nonimmigrants with a B visa can transit through the US and do not need a separate C visa. Would Section 2. a) viii) then also allow any non-immigrant with a B visa to transit through the US?
