  • On January 31, 2020, a new Presidential Proclamation (“Presidential Proclamation 9983”) was issued which added to the ongoing travel restrictions of P.P. 9645 by expanding them to the nationals of six additional countries.  The restrictions only apply to immigrant visas and/or diversity visas, not nonimmigrant visas.  More information is available at this link
  • Effective August 5, 2019, North Korea has been added to the list of countries for which the travel restrictions under the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 (VWP Improvement Act) currently apply. 

    Nationals of VWP countries who have traveled to or been present in North Korea on or after March 1, 2011 (with limited exceptions for travel for diplomatic or military purposes in the service of a VWP country) or dual nationality with North Korea are no longer eligible to travel or be admitted to the United States under the VWP.   These restrictions do not bar travel to the United States, but they do require applicants covered by the restrictions to obtain a U.S. visa before they travel to United States.
