February 3, 2020 Presidential Travel Ban Update
 

On January 31, 2020 President Trump issued a Presidential Proclamation to take effect on February 21, 2020. This Presidential Proclamation restricts nationals of Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar (Burma), and Nigeria from applying for immigrant visas (with limited exceptions), and restricts nationals of Sudan and Tanzania from applying for visas based on the Diversity Visa lottery.

This restriction does not impact non-immigrant visa types, including the F-1 student and J-1 exchange visitor visas. We do not anticipate that this updated travel restriction will impact SCU international students, scholars, professors or researchers.
