Executive Order: September 24, 2017 Update

globe on desk

In the face of the latest Executive Order issued by President Trump on Sunday, September 24, that indefinitely bars almost all travel from eight countries, our response remains the same: Global Affairs and Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) welcomes students and scholars from all parts of the world regardless of national origin.  We are proud that the UC Davis community includes people from over 100 countries.

The U.S. Department of State will determine which individuals will receive a U.S. Visa, and we cannot be certain to what extent this new Executive Order will affect our community.  However, you can be certain that Global Affairs, including SISS, is committed to supporting all of our international students and scholars.  You are welcomed at UC Davis.  We want you to be here.

More detailed information for each country can be found at the U.S. Department of State website.

SISS staff are here to assist you
  • If you are a new student, exchange visitor or employee from the list of eight countries, make sure you have your immigration paperwork in your carry-on and be prepared to answer questions by Customs and Border Protection officials about your relationship with UC Davis. If you have concerns, please contact SISS.
  • If you are a current student, exchange visitor or employee from the list of eight countries, please contact your SISS advisor to discuss any questions you have regarding travel.
  • If you are inviting family members to Davis, please contact SISS.
