U.S. Supreme Court allows third travel ban to go into effect
Dec. 6, 2017
On Dec. 4, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the third travel ban to take full effect. The two orders issued by the court allow for the new restrictions on travel for foreign nationals of the eight named countries to be enforced while litigation in the lower courts continues. In October, two federal judges partially blocked the third travel ban. These decisions will be reviewed this week by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is scheduled to hear oral arguments on Dec. 6, and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is scheduled to hear arguments on Dec. 8. Northeastern will continue to monitor the situation closely and update this page as more information becomes available. Please contact the university’s Office of Global Services at OGS@northeastern.edu if you have any questions, and review travel related information on their website.
