*Note that the data was last updated February 14, 2020.* A travel ban was implemented by President Donald Trump on March 24, 2020. There are currently 23 states that have been placed under a travel ban for the US citizens. This travel ban was implemented due to the coronavirus outbreak. These travel bans may be lifted as states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Illinois, etc. have successfully started to reopen their economy.
Why are Indian people complaining about the visa ban
The United States Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice issued a new immigration policy that affects travelers from eight countries. The new policy takes effect on September 24. The new policy affects travelers from eight countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It also affects travelers from North Korea and Venezuela. People from the eight countries will need to have their visas approved by the State Department before they travel to the US. People who come from these countries will need to have a visa to enter the US. There are exceptions to this policy. This means that there are no restrictions for people from the following countries: Canada, England, Ireland, Germany, India, Japan, Malta, and New Zealand. Additionally, there are no restrictions for people coming from countries outside the list of countries affected by this policy. This includes people from China, Korea, Mexico, and Australia. This new policy affects travelers from the eight countries from October 24, 2019, to January 22, 2020. This includes travelers who arrive on or after October 24, 2019, and who arrive at a US airport to undergo screening. People who are already in the US are not affected by this policy.
How can India and US stay together
Indian and US have been in political relationship for quite a long time and it is an example of bilateral relation. India and the US have been joined in political relationship with the founding of the Republic of India on 15 August 1947, the US recognized India as a sovereign state in 1950, on 2nd December 1962, India and the US signed a Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation. The US-India Trade and Investment Partnership Act was adopted by the US Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2006, which gave to the bilateral relation a new dimension.
What is the next step?
President Trump has signed the new executive order. The executive order will go into effect within 15 days, with many of the restrictions removed. The travel ban has already been suspended in all countries except Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. The White House says that visas will be issued to people coming from those countries within 72 hours. However, no refugees will be admitted for 120 days, starting on June 29th. The travel ban was implemented on March 6th of this year. President Trump says that the travel ban will be lifted soon. The new executive order does away with one of the original restrictions on the travel ban, the 90-day ban on all refugees entering the United States. The new executive order also states that anyone who is a terrorist or who poses a threat to the U.S. will be barred from entering the country. This is in line with the original executive order. President Trump says that his administration is preparing a new executive order to be signed in the next few weeks, which will add additional restrictions on travel.
What happens to travellers now?
The USA has announced that it will be banning travellers from seven mainly Muslim majority countries. However, it appears that visitors from the affected countries will be allowed to enter the USA temporarily. It’s expected that travellers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and Chad will be allowed to enter the US for 90 days, while those from Sudan and North Korea will be allowed to enter for 30 days. Travelers from all of the countries can also use their Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) to obtain a 90 day visa waiver to enter the US. However, the Iranian government has announced that it will no longer comply with ESTA. This will be a problem for travellers from Iran who want to enter the USA. As of now, there is no official statement from the US about what will happen to these travellers. However, many people are fearing that travellers from these countries will not be able to enter the USA. There are reports of travellers checking in to airports and being denied entry. Many people are also saying that this is a US government attempt to make the world safe from terrorism.
Is the ban over?
The latest travel ban was issued on January 27th, when President Donald Trump signed an executive order that put a 90-day ban on nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen from entering the United States. The ban was halted, however, on a temporary basis after a legal challenge was filed in court. Now, new information has emerged that indicates the ban may be over.
[Subhead]: Bloomberg says the ban was only partially in place for part of February, which would mean the order is over.
[Text]: Apparently, this was due to challenges that had been filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the State of Hawaii, and those challenges allowed the travel ban to be put on hold, which means it was not entirely in place for all of February. So, apparently, the ban was temporarily lifted for part of February.
