Travelers in the USVI are banned from visiting the city for up to 72 hours without a visa.
The restrictions are a continuation of an earlier travel ban imposed in October 2017.
The USVI government said on Thursday that it was lifting the restrictions, but not before thousands of visitors from the US are being stranded in the city.
The state of Texas has also announced that it will also allow people from the region to return to their homes without a waiver.
The Texas governor, Greg Abbott, announced that he will waive the quarantine requirements, saying that “people need to be able to get to their loved ones and the places they love, and they need to have a chance to go home.”
The state’s Department of Public Safety issued a statement that the move was meant to allow the state’s 1.3 million residents to get home and work as quickly as possible.
The agency said that a quarantine of a minimum of 72 hours will be in place for residents of the state of California, Texas, and New Mexico, but that those in New York and Massachusetts will be exempt from the quarantine.
The California Department of Corrections said it was canceling all parole and probation and parole appointments and suspending parole appointments for residents in New Mexico.
It said in a statement to the Associated Press that the order would also allow for parole appointments in California, New York, Arizona, Washington and Montana.
The New York state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said on Twitter that the restrictions are expected to end on January 8.
The announcement came hours after President Donald Trump signed a proclamation that indefinitely blocked travel to the US from seven Muslim-majority countries and suspended refugee admissions from seven countries.
The proclamation said that it “shall take effect on January 1, 2021.”
A new order from the president’s office on Monday said that the US will not grant visas or entry permits to anyone from the seven countries except for those who are “essential for the safety of the American people.”
The travel ban will also bar people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the US.
It also banned refugees from Syria indefinitely.
Trump also issued an executive order on Tuesday barring Syrian refugees from entering America for six months.
The president’s executive order also prohibited people from seven of the affected countries from entering for 90 days.
“This order will not change our national security interests or our relationship with our closest allies in the region, including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, and the United Kingdom,” Trump said in the proclamation.
Trump and his administration are already facing backlash from many countries who say that the executive order will harm US interests.
In Saudi Arabia and the UAE, there are strong fears that the ban will hurt the US-Saudi relationship.
The order also prevents citizens of Syria from entering.
Many people in the Muslim world have been calling on Trump to stop the ban.
On Wednesday, the Trump administration announced it was pulling its refugee resettlement program and suspending all visas for refugees.
The new restrictions have drawn strong criticism from international aid groups, including from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
The UN says the travel ban violates international law.
US President Donald Trumps administration announced a new travel ban on December 27.
The executive order was a response to the terror attacks in Paris, France, in which 130 people died.
It states that the president “has concluded that the security of the United States is more important than the security or welfare of any one nation, and that the entry of aliens or non-citizens of any class of aliens into the United State would be detrimental to the interests of the Republic.”
