On January 27, 2017, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that included a travel ban and visa freeze for foreign nationals from seven countries. Legal challenges in US federal courts have temporarily prevented the ban from taking effect.

Nevertheless, employers need clarification on the appropriate advice for their workforces, which types of workers and visas could be directly affected if the ban is reinstated, and broader issues concerning travel to the United States.
