Tump Executive Order: Update on U.S. Immigration Law Travel Restrictions, Manhattan, New York

In order to keep our clients and all interested parties informed we would like to pass along information received  that the Department of State has indicated that it is provisionally revoking all nonimmigrant and immigrant visas for nationals from the 7 countries affected by the January 27 Executive Order. We will pass along any additional information as it becomes available.

 

Additionally, CBP has updated their website with information about how they are processing nationals of the 7 countries affected: https://www.cbp.gov/border-security/protecting-nation-foreign-terrorist-entry-united-states

 

The latest information received from CBP is that lawful permanent residents will no longer require a waiver in order to be considered for entry at all U.S. ports of entry as previously required under the January 27 Executive Order.
