International Scholar News

The Office of International Affairs is committed to supporting and assisting the university community with international related-concerns. In light of the new executive order that was signed on March 6, 2017, additional information and resources are available for those students, faculty and staff who are affected or who may have concerns.

While the new executive order is narrower in scope, it still has broad implications for our university community. Entry into the United States has been suspended for certain nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Iraq has been exempted. The travel suspension is effective on March 16 for 90 days. Travelers to those countries who are permanent residents ("green card holders") of the United States or dual citizens who use a passport from another country, and those who hold a valid visa are exempt from the suspension. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has posted a Q&A that offers additional details and examples that may be helpful.

On January 27, 2017 an Executive Order was signed that has suspended entry into the United States for non-immigrants and immigrants who are nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The period of suspension is 90 days from the signing date and is still in effect.

The Office of International Affairs strongly cautions against travel outside the United States if you are a national of any of these countries and has provided answers to frequently asked questions regarding this Executive Order.

The FAQ document for J-1 visa holders is found here, and for H-1B visa holders and their dependents is found here.

These documents may help clarify information regarding the travel suspension. However, please seek the advice of an experienced immigration attorney if you are from one of the seven countries listed in the Executive Order and are considering travel outside the United States.
