Statement to Notre Dame international students and scholars

by Notre Dame News

University of Notre Dame

Dear International Students and Scholars,

As many of you already know, an executive order was signed by the U.S. president this weekend that, among other things, suspends visa issuance and entry into the U.S. for the next 90 days for nationals of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya. Throughout the weekend, a few clarifications have been made by U.S. government officials, but there remains uncertainty about whether nationals from these countries will be admitted into the United States for the next 90 days, even those holding green cards or those who hold dual citizenship.

We are closely monitoring developments relating to the full impact of this order. Until further notice, we advise any individuals from any of the seven named countries to suspend all planned travel outside the United States.

We will provide further information as it becomes available. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact the Office of Notre Dame International.

As international educators we believe in the importance of what we do, and we believe in you as critical members of our Notre Dame and American community.

Michael E. Pippenger
Vice President and Associate Provost for Internationalization
