News on Travel Ban from Artists from Abroad
Artists from Abroad shares this update on President Trump’s recent executive order that affects screening, visa issuance, and admissions procedures for individuals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
“On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an Executive Order that immediately affects screening, visa issuance and admissions procedures for individuals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. This order applies to anyone who holds a passport from any of these 7 designated countries, including dual citizens with passports from both a designated and a non-designated country. Those dual nationals holding U.S. citizenship remain able to re-enter the U.S., but they should expect additional scrutiny and delay on entry. Similarly, the Executive Order does NOT apply to people who merely traveled to designated countries, though travel to those countries also may cause additional questioning and delay on entry into the U.S. (more).
