Ackah Law Update - U.S. Executive Order

Dear Friends and Clients,

You have undoubtedly heard about the presidential executive order issued on January 27, 2017 that puts an immediate halt on entry to the United States for citizens of Libya, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The ban will remain in effect for 90 days and likely signals longer term changes to U.S. immigration laws regarding the entry of these foreign nationals.

Given the sudden implementation of this executive order, the full implications of the ban are not yet known, however the Canadian Government has confirmed that this will not apply to dual nationals from the affected countries who also hold Canadian Passports. It is not clear how it may impact Permanent Residents of Canada. We are following developments very closely and will endeavor to keep you posted.

If you believe that you or your employees or family members may be impacted by the travel ban and require assistance with upcoming travel plans to the United States, please contact our office to arrange a consultation so that we may advise you of your options and help you develop a strategy.

Yours truly,

Ackah Business Immigration Law
