Temporary immigration restrictions
On 27 January 2017, President Trump signed an Executive Order suspending immigrant and non-immigrant entry to the USA for people from Libya, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for a period of 90 days (ie until 27 April 2017). Excluded from the temporary measures are those travelling on diplomatic visas, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation visas, C-2 visas for travel to the United Nations, and G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4 visas.

We have confirmed with the US government that British passport holders (regardless of country of birth or whether they hold another passport/nationality) aren’t affected by the Executive Order.

If you’re unsure whether you’re affected by these new measures, you should contact the nearest US Embassy or Consulate for advice.
