Executive Order Information

On Monday, June 26, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court partially granted the government's request to stay preliminary injunctions on the 90-day travel ban in section 2(c) of Executive Order 13780. This decision will result in section 2(c) being enacted except under certain conditions. It is expected to be enforced within 72 hours and will result in the travel ban for individuals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen “who lack a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

In addition, the Court formally lifted the injunction on the section outlining the government's study which could lead, under section 2(e) of the executive order, to an indefinite ban on entry by nationals of countries that do not provide the U.S. government with sufficient information on citizens who are applying for U.S. visas or immigration benefits.

While the Court cited several examples of such “bona fide relationships” — such as students admitted to a U.S. college or university or individuals employed by U.S. entities — further guidance from the State Department is needed regarding full application of these rules. The Supreme Court will hear arguments on this case in October, and a final decision is expected during the 2017-18 academic year.

Specific information to F and J students and scholars will continue to be posted on OIE website as it becomes available. The NAFSA: Association of International Educators and the Council on Global Immigration are additional resources. The Campus-wide Guidance Regarding Travel, Immigration, and Visas will continue to offer broad resources and information.

More information on the Executive Order page.
