Information on the U.S. Travel Ban
Updated October 19, 2017
Under the proposed ban, travel restrictions would apply to citizens of North Korea, Venezuela and Chad. The updated ban would continue to restrict the travel of citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, but would no longer apply to citizens of Sudan. Each country affected by the revised ban would have its own set of travel restrictions and the new restrictions would be indefinite.
For current information on travel to the United States, please see the Canadian government's travel advice and advisories (see the entry/exit requirements section). It is recommended that students double-check their documentation and eligibility prior to making any flight reservations. Please refer to the International Student Arrival Guide created by the Edmonton International Airport for more travel information.
