An executive order from President Joesph Biden has reversed the previous administration’s Muslim travel ban policies.
On January 20, 2021, President Biden revoked the bans targeting predominantly people from certain Muslim-majority and African countries. Combined, the bans had covered individuals from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Burma (Myanmar), Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan and Tanzania. Individuals from these countries are no longer banned from traveling to the U.S. For more information, see this advisory from the American Immigration Lawyers Association and its partners.
