President Trump Issues New Travel Ban

Topics: Immigration

This morning, President Trump issued an Executive Order entitled Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.  This new Executive Order contains a prohibition on entry into the United States for citizens and nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria & Yemen.  Iraq has been removed from the list of banned nations.  However, unlike the last travel ban, citizens from the six nations will be barred from entering the United States so long as the following conditions are met:

  • The foreign national is outside the United States as of the issue date of the order; and
  • The foreign national does not presently poses a valid US visa, or received a U.S. visa after January 27, 2017.

The travel ban does not apply to:

  • Lawful Permanent Residents also known as “Green Card Holders”;
  • Individuals holding U.S. visas that were issued before January 27, 2017;
  • Individuals holding non-visa travel documents such as advanced parole documents or refugee travel documents; or
  • Dual nationals who hold the passport of a banned and a non-banned nation so long as he or she presents the non-banned nation’s passport upon arrival into the United States.

The new travel ban goes into effect on March 16, 2107 and remains in effect for 90 days.
