ExceptionsThe latest travel ban does not apply to:
- Lawful permanent residents of the United States.
- Any foreign national who is admitted to or paroled into the United States on or after the travel ban goes in to effect.
- Foreign nationals with a transportation letter, appropriate boarding foil, or an advance parole document. Documents must be valid on the day the ban goes in to effect and any date after.
- Dual national of one of the banned countries if traveling with the passport issued by a country not on the banned list.
- Foreign nationals traveling on 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 visas.
- Foreign nationals granted asylum by the United States; 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.
WaiversWaivers of the travel ban can be granted on a case-by-case basis. In order to be granted a waiver of the travel ban a foreign national would have to prove:
- Denying entry would case the foreign national undue hardship.
- Entry would not pose a national security or public safety risk.
- Entry would be in the national interest.
