Dear Members of the Angelo State University Community:
Recent regulatory and policy changes affecting international travel and visa holders will likely result in questions among students, faculty and staff. Specifically, an executive order has been issued that limits nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days, and places additional restrictions on individuals seeking entry pursuant to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.
The U.S. Department of State has issued the following notice at https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html regarding the executive order, and we will continue to closely monitor for any additional updates and guidance from federal officials.
As you know, the safety and well-being of the ASU community is our top priority, and it is important that we remain in close communication as new information and direction from the State Department becomes available in the coming days.
All international students, staff and faculty who might be traveling overseas in the near future are advised to consult with the ASU Center for International Studies - at 325-942-2083 or http://www.angelo.edu/dept/cis/contact.php , or you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It appears that no Angelo State University faculty/staff or students were detained over the weekend as a result of the executive order.
The staff within the Center for International Studies is committed to serving our colleagues at ASU. We will continue to assess the impact on our students, staff and faculty, and will provide updated information and assistance.
Director, Center for International Studies
