February 3, 2020

From NAFSA: Association of International Educators

What You Need to Know:

  • The six countries added to the existing travel ban are: Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania.
  • The expanded ban becomes effective at 12:01 a.m. (EST) on February 21, 2020.
  • The ban contains restrictions on immigrants but not on nonimmigrants, so it will not impact acquisition of nonimmigrant visas like F-1 student, J-1 exchange visitor, H-1B worker, etc., or of admission to the United States in those categories.
