Part Of US Travel Ban Order to Take Effect Within Hours

The United States is hours away from implementing new travel rules requiring visa applicants from six majority-Muslim nations to have a close relationship with a family member or business in the U.S. in order to be eligible to be admitted to the country.

Senior administration officials Thursday outlined how consular officials should proceed with the visa applications for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The new rules will be implemented at 8 p.m. EST on Thursday.

Anyone in transit to the U.S. with travel scheduled before July 6 will be allowed to enter. Those with travel booked after will be addressed "later," according to senior administration officials.

Previously scheduled visa application appointments will not be cancelled, administration officials said, but all new applicants would have to prove their bona fide relationship to a family member or business in the U.S. in addition to passing traditional screening.

“We expect business as usual at ports of entry starting at 8 p.m.,” the officials said, anticipating a smooth roll-out. Implementation of a first version of the travel order in January was met with protests at airports around the country.
