Executive Order Travel Advisory

The Office of International Affairs is committed to supporting and assisting the university community with international related-concerns. In light of the recent Executive Order and its implications for our university community, we want to provide additional information and resources for those students, faculty and staff who are affected or who may have concerns.

The Executive Order 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 date of signing of the executive order on January 27, 2017. The Department of Homeland Security has indicated that it will generally permit permanent residents ("green card" holders) from these countries to enter the United States. However, permanent residents from these countries may be subject to additional scrutiny and questioning upon entry to the United States.

We strongly caution against travel outside the United States if you are a national of any of these countries. Please seek the advice of an experienced immigration attorney if you are consideirng travel outside the United States. You can find some available resources here.

It is important to affirm Ohio State's commitment to protecting the information of all of its students, regardless of immigration status. The university's established and consistently applied policies hold that it does not release personal data, including immigration status to third parties except as required by law.

If members of the Ohio State community have any questions or concerns about their imigration status, please contact us at iss@osu.edu.

Support resources are available through Student Life's Counseling and Consultation Service and the Employee Assistance Program.
