Yesterday afternoon, we wrote to you about President Trump's executive order restricting people from seven countries from entering the United States. We write now with an important update and with new guidance to directly affected members of the MIT community.
The seven affected countries are: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
New guidance from MIT
The MIT administration is helping members of our community who we know to be traveling, including connecting them to legal resources.
If you are from one of the seven affected countries and are not already in touch with us, please reach out. You can email David Elwell, Associate Dean and Director of the International Students Office, or Penny Rosser, Director of the International Scholars Office. We will do what we can to help you get back to campus.
We will send further updates as necessary.
