Urgent Visa Notice (New Update 02/07/2017)

The Department of Justice informed us of the Washington state court ruling barring the U.S. government from enforcing certain provisions of Executive Order 13769, including those related to visas and travel. We have reversed the provisional revocation of visas under Executive Order 13769.  Those individuals with visas that were not physically cancelled may now travel if the visa is otherwise valid.  Individuals whose visas are expired, or were physically cancelled, must apply for a new visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate, absent a Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) decision to grant parole or waive the visa requirement at the port of entry.  We will revise this site with any updates as information becomes available.

If you have other questions regarding your visa application, you may contact: Consulardoha@state.gov
