On June 26, 2017 the Supreme Court announced that it will allow certain portions of the March 2017 Executive Order 90-day travel ban to be in effect. However, individuals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen who can show that they have a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the US” continue to be exempt from the ban.
UC Davis welcomes people of all backgrounds and nationalities, including those from the countries named in the Executive Order. Global Affairs, including the staff at Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS), is committed to supporting all of our international students and scholars.
We cannot be certain how US government officials will interpret and implement the Supreme Court’s order. However, there is a strong argument that admitted students, invited scholars, and workers who accepted employment at UC Davis all have a "bona fide relationship" with UC Davis.
SISS staff are here to assist you
