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 March 6, 2017, President Trump issued a new Executive Order on Immigration, revoking his original January 27 order.

This new order suspends entry into the United States for only non-visa holders from the following six countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen; however, no longer suspends entry into the United States by Iraqi citizens, green card holders or visa holders from the above six mentioned countries.

This new order will go into effect on March 16. For the most up-to-date information about international travel to the U.S., visit www.travel.state.gov.

You can also access additional information and resources from the International Visitors Office of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston!
