Travel Ban Takes Effect
On December 4, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an order permitting the third iteration of the Trump administration’s travel ban to go into full effect. The current travel ban (Presidential Proclamation 9645) affects those who have no credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States, and are citizens from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria or Yemen. The ban also affects certain Venezuelan government officials and most North Koreans. Exempt from the ban are green card holders, most F-1 students and academic appointments on J, H-1B and O visas.
Prior to traveling, any students or scholars from these countries should consult with ISSS or an immigration attorney.
