Executive Order on Visas

On March 6, 2017, President Trump signed a new Executive Order which directs us to review current screening procedures, while protecting national security – our top priority when issuing visas. The Executive Order has an effective date of March 16, 2017.

For 90 days after the effective date, foreign nationals from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen who are outside the United States on the effective date of the order, do not currently have a valid visa on the effective date of this order, and did not have a valid visa on January 27, 2017, are not eligible to travel to the United States.

The Executive Order states that no visa issued before its effective date will be revoked pursuant to this order.

The Executive Order does not apply to certain individuals, such as lawful permanent residents of the United States; foreign nationals admitted to the United States after the effective date of the order; individuals with a visa or other document that is valid on the effective date of the order or any date thereafter which permits travel to the United States; dual nationals when travelling on a passport issued by a non-designated country; foreign nationals traveling on diplomatic, NATO, C-2 for travel to the United Nations, G-1, G-2, G-3, or G-4 visas; and individuals already granted asylum or refugee status in the United States before the effective date of the order.

At this time, U.S. embassies and consulates will continue to accept and process visa applications while applying all appropriate screening measures, as they have been.
