  • The new  Ban does not apply to:
    • Lawful permanent residents (green card holders);
    • Individuals admitted or paroled into the U.S. on or after the effective date of the new Ban;
    • Those with a document other than a visa that allows them to travel to the U.S., if the document is dated on or after the effective date of the new Ban;
