Who's Allowed Into the US Under the Revised Travel Ban
On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that
parts of Donald Trump's travel ban were acceptable
, leading the State Department to create a set of new guidelines on the ban, which applies to nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, with a few exceptions. To
The New York Times has made an interactive guide on who is allowed into the US and who isn't.
Who Is Allowed
The court ruled that the
A "bona fide" relationship with an entity could include speaking at a university in the US or taking a job from a company in the US. But it exempts companies and nonprofits from creating relationships-like calling people "clients"-to help people avoid the ban.
Green card holders, dual nationals, American citizens, and diplomats
will be allowed into the US. Diplomats include UN visitors, NATO officials, international representatives, and others with A-1 or A-2 visas.
Students and workers would be allowed entry into the US, regardless of if they have visas or not. They are already qualified for non-immigrant work visas because they have "bona fide" relationships in the US. In 2015, there were 13,000 tempory visits from students and workers from the six countries.
Who Might Be Allowed
Tourists and business travelers would need non-immigrant visas to travel to the US. Otherwise, they would need to prove that they had a "bona fide" relationship with someone or an entity from the US.
People with new immigrant visas who have obtained their visas through employment or family status would not be banned from entering the US, but those who received their status through a lottery would not be able to enter if they're unable to prove a "bona fide" relationship with someone or an entity in the US.
Refugees are barred from entering the US for 120 days. However, refugees with "bona fide" relationships with people in the US would be allowed entry, and refugees who have already entered the US would be allowed to stay. It's unclear if refugees connected to resettlement agencies will be allowed to enter the country or not.
Anyone else who doesn't meet these criteria and is traveling from the six countries will be stopped from entering the US for the next 90 days.
The Supreme Court will make a final ruling on the travel ban in the fall .
