International Student News

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.

The Office of International Affairs is seeking both American and international students to volunteer as Global Ambassadors. Global Ambassadors are a diverse team of students committed to promoting cultural exchange at The Ohio State University. As volunteers with the Office of International Affairs, Global Ambassadors demonstrate a commitment to the mission of the Office of International Affairs, which seeks the engagement of students, staff and faculty in the global Ohio State community.
