Limited Travel Ban restrictions are re-implemented and in effect at airports and U.S. consulates worldwide.Timing:
Official Customs and Border Protection (CBP) guidance says they’ll start implementing their directives at at 8pm on Thursday the 29th. Some airports have said they’ll start as early as 10:30am on Thursday (no word on Atlanta).
Direct from CBP:
“The impact at the ports will be minimal, because all individuals already in possession of valid visas will be authorized to travel.”
Direct from Department of State (DOS):
Nothing, yet. DOS is responsible for drafting the bulk of the policy guidance for how this will be implemented going forward, as the government anticipates this will mostly impact those abroad.
We need to know how monitor the implementation of the Supreme Court’s “bona fide relationship” test. Attorneys should report what you see/hear/experience here: www.aila.org/travelban
Plan for Now:
Local attorneys have volunteered in shifts to be ready at the airports to assist with blocked admissions. We’re in coordination with them to monitor and see if more volunteers will be needed.
