Seyfarth Synopsis:  U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the Travel Ban in their next term.

Shortly before its summer recess, the United States Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments on the Trump administration’s revised travel ban against nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The hearing is expected to take place this fall.

Further, the Court has reinstated the travel ban for the six countries, but only insofar as it relates to foreign nationals who lack a bona fide relationship with a U.S. person or entity.  Examples of individuals who do possess a bona fide relationship with a U.S. entity include students enrolled at U.S. universities and employees of U.S. companies.  Conversely, foreign nationals from the affected countries wishing to visit solely for tourism may encounter significant challenges entering the U.S.

This ruling will not impact U.S. employers that employ foreign nationals from any of the affected countries.  U.S. employers may continue to sponsor their employees for employment-based visa petitions, and employees may continue to apply for work visas at U.S. Embassies and Consulates. However, all foreign nationals from these countries should nevertheless exercise caution when travelling to the U.S., as they can expect to face lengthy delays and questioning at the border as part of the administration’s ongoing “extreme vetting” measures.

Seyfarth Shaw is monitoring the developments closely, and will publish updated information accordingly.
