Presidential Proclamation is fully in effect

Page last updated: January 26, 2018, 1 p.m. Eastern Time

The U.S. Supreme Court has allowed these travel restrictions to go into full effect while other courts review the full case. That means that all individuals described below will not be able to obtain visas to enter the U.S., at least until the courts review the full case and make a final decision.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case this spring and will probably release a decision by the end of June 2018.

Who is not impacted?

The proclamation does not apply to:

  • All existing immigrant and nonimmigrants currently holding a visa (i.e., individuals will not have their visas revoked)
  • Any lawful permanent resident of the United States
  • Any foreign national admitted or paroled into the United States on or after the effective date
  • Any foreign national who has an advance parole (travel) document that is valid on or after the effective date and that permits travel and to seek entry to the United States
  • Any dual national of a country when the individual is traveling on a passport issued by a non-designated country
  • Any foreign national granted asylum by the United States
