Executive Order on Visas
An order issued by a U.S. District court in the state of Washington on February 3 bars the U.S. government from enforcing certain
provisions of Executive Order 13769, “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals,” including those related to
visas and travel for nationals of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen.
The Department of State had, under the Executive Order, provisionally revoked all valid visas of nationals of those seven countries,
with limited exceptions. That provisional revocation is now lifted, and those visas are now valid for travel to the United States, if the
holder is otherwise eligible. Individuals whose visas are expired, or were physically cancelled, must apply for a new visa at a U.S.
embassy or consulate, absent a Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) decision to grant parole or waive the visa requirement at the port
of entry. We are looking further into this issue and will revise this site with any updates.
We are working closely with the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security and we will provide further updates as soon as
information is available.
On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed Executive Order 13769 on Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign
Nationals which directs us to review current screening procedures, while protecting national security – our top priority when issuing
The U.S. government’s national security screening and vetting procedures for visitors are constantly reviewed and refined to
improve security and more effectively identify individuals who could pose a threat to the United States. We welcome every
opportunity to continue to review and improve our systems and procedures. In implementing this executive order, the Department
of State had temporarily stopped scheduling appointments and halted processing of immigrant and nonimmigrant visa applications
for individuals from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen, with limited exceptions. Processing of those applications
has now resumed and appointments will be scheduled.
