United States and Turkey Suspend Nonimmigrant Visa Services

The U.S. suspended nonimmigrant visa services at all consulates in Turkey on October 8, 2017. This is in effect for all citizens of all countries, not just Turkish citizens.  Visas that have already been issued have not revoked. As a result, Turkey has suspended all visa services, as well as "sticker visas," e-Visas, and border visas, at their embassies and consulates in the United States for U.S. citizens. The decision to suspend visa services was based on the arrest of 2 Turkish citizens who were employees of the U.S. embassy. 

Turkish citizens with valid visas may still travel to the U.S. Those needing to apply for a nonimmigrant visa may travel outside of Turkey and apply at another U.S. embassy.

Presidential Proclamation on Executive Order Travel Ban

On September 24, 2017, President Trump issued a Proclamation on the Executive Order 13780 (from March 6, 2017) banning or restricting entry of certain foreign nationals to the United States. The eight countries that are included in the Proclamation are Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen, and Somalia.  Although Iraq is not included in this Proclamation, Iraqi nationals who arrive in the United States may experience additional scrutiny if they pose risk to the U.S.
