What has changed in the travel ban introduced by President Trump?

The new travel ban has a similar goal to the original executive order signed by Donald Trump in February 2017, but it has some difference:

  • It applies to six countries - Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Iran, Yemen, Libya - but not to one of the original seven. Iraq is now not on the list of banned countries because the US needs co-operation of many Iraqis in the fight against so-called Islamic State.
  • The ban will be introduced after a two-week period, rather than immediately as with the first ban
  • It does not apply to people who are already permanent US residents or who have visas
  • What was an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria is now a 120-day ban.
