From UNLs International Student and Scholar Office – sent to: UNL International Students

On Monday, March 06, 2017, President Trump signed a revised version <https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/03/06/presidential-executive-order-protecting-nation-foreign-terrorist-entry>  of the original executive order <https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/01/27/executive-order-protecting-nation-foreign-terrorist-entry-united-states>  “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into The United States”. We will continue to update you with any new developments and will share information promptly via email and our website <https://isso.unl.edu/important.immigration.updates> . In the meantime, we provide below a digest of the parameters stated in the revised executive order:
 1.      Iraq has been removed from the list of countries affected. The six countries remaining on the list include: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
 2.      An explanation for the inclusion of each country on the list is included in the executive order.
 3.      Suspension of entry does not apply to:
 a.      permanent residents of the United States
 b.     any foreign national who is admitted to or paroled into the United States on or after the effective date of this order
 c.      any foreign national who has a document other than a visa, valid on the effective date of this order or issued on any date thereafter, that permits him or her to travel to the United States and seek entry or admission, such as an advance parole document
 d.     any dual national of a country designated in the order when the individual is traveling on a passport issued by a non-designated country
 e.     any foreign national traveling on a diplomatic or diplomatic-type visa, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visa, C-2 visa for travel to the United Nations, or G-1, G-2, G-3, or G-4 visa; or
 f.       any foreign national who has been granted asylum; any refugee who has already been admitted to the United States; or any individual who has been granted withholding of removal, advance parole, or protection under the Convention Against Torture.
 4.      The order retains a 120-day ban on entry of refugees from all nations. The indefinite ban on refugees from Syria has been removed.
 
The new executive order <https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/03/06/presidential-executive-order-protecting-nation-foreign-terrorist-entry>  goes into effect on March 16, 2017.
