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.

Monday, December 19, 2016 – Ohio State is monitoring the tragic incident at the Breitscheidplatz Christmas market in Berlin, Germany. Ohio State has 15 known student travelers with current itineraries in Germany. One group program had recently departed Berlin before the incident and arrived safely at their destination in Cologne. Ohio State has been in contact with program leaders who have accounted for the well-being of all travelers on that program.
 
The other travelers are independent students finishing their terms at German universities located in regions well away from Berlin. Ohio State has reached out directly to those students with information and safety reminders. Ohio State will continue to monitor the events in Germany through the advice of the Department of State, the Overseas Security Advisory Council and our security providers.
