The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) stayed preliminary injunctions that had partially blocked the (partial or full) travel restrictions on entry to the U.S. from being enforced under Proclamation 9645 associated with Section 2(e) of the Executive Order 13780.  The SCOTUS decision authorizes the U.S. government to enforce travel restrictions on all eight countries while appeals in the Ninth and Fourth Circuits, or any further SCOTUS review, are in proceedings.

All students and scholars should review the OIE Guidance; nationals from the eight countries listed are advised to seek immigration counsel before planning any international travel.
