Travel Warning Update: No Immediate Plans to Expand Travel Ban Beyond Current Countries


In response to rumors of plans to expand the travel ban to other countries, the U.S. Department of State (DOS) informed the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) on February 2, 2017, that there is no addendum, annex or amendment now being worked on to expand visa revocations or the travel ban to countries other than the seven currently implicated in the Executive Order entitled, "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States." This includes Columbia and Venezuela which have been widely rumored to be under consideration. DOS has asked AILA members to help spread this information.
