| Salaam Alaikum, |
U.S. Supreme Court issued a 5-4 decision in support of Trump's bigoted Muslim Ban. Now more than ever, it's important to know your rights. Since December 4, 2017, the Muslim Ban has been in full effect for certain individuals from: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. All are facing great difficulty in their applications for visas to be united with family, study in the U.S., get urgent medical treatment, or to visit for tourism.
In this advisory we cover the current status of the Muslim Ban, who is impacted, as well as information about the so-called waiver process. Please note that this information is subject to change based on the various legal challenges. We will update you should changes happen.
Who Is Impacted?
Certain nationals of seven countries - Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen.
Muslim Ban 3.0 only applies to individuals who are 1) outside of the U.S. on the effective date, 2) who did not have a valid visa on that date, and 3) who have not obtained a waiver (discussed below).
CAIR has published a guide that provides more details on what to do if you are impacted by the Travel Ban. Our guide is available in English, Arabic, Farsi, Somali and Urdu.
