The Recent Executive Order Impacting International Travelers to the United States

On January 27, 2017, President Trump issued an Executive Order that temporarily suspended or limited travel to the United States from seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya and Yemen. This order also included a 90-day prohibition on visa issuance to persons from these countries.

UPDATE: On February 9, 2017, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled to block enforcement of this Executive Order. As such, the Executive Order will not be enforced at this time. For the most up-to-date information about this suspension and international travel to the U.S., visit Please note that if international attendees are forced to cancel their registration due to VISA issues, the AUA will provide a 100% refund of registration fees.

We hope to see you in Boston!
